Maryland Charter School Funding History

Since charter school legislation was passed by the Maryland General Assembly in 2003, school districts and charter school operators have disagreed on how charter schools should be funded. The origin of this dispute lies in the lack of clarity in the law, which does not state what funding for charter schools should be. 

Below is the law and a history of the litigation that has taken place, along with some links to key rulings from either the Supreme Court of Maryland (formerly the Court of Appeals of Maryland), the highest court in the state, or the Maryland State Board of Education (MSBE).
