Authorizer | Volunteers of America-Minnesota

Charter schools in Minnesota are approved by the Minnesota Department of Education and must have an Authorizer to oversee school operations. Together, these entities monitor the school's performance in both academic and non-academic contract goals. The role of an authorizer is to ensure that the schools it authorizes fulfill the purposes of chartered public schools and that the agreed-upon terms of the charter contract safeguard quality educational opportunities for students and maintain public trust and confidence.

Volunteers of America-Minnesota authorizes PACT Charter School as of July 1, 2022.
