Shining Stars Montessori Academy Public Charter School is accountable to parents and the community. One of the ways that accountability is effectuated is through the oversight of our operations by the D.C. Public Charter School Board. 

Congress opened the door for charters in the nation’s capital when it passed the DC School Reform Act of 1995 and all public charter schools in the District of Columbia are authorized under the DC Code. The D.C. Public Charter School Board is an independent body governed by the School Reform Act, that is codified in Title 38, Subtitle IV, Chapter 18.

In March 18, 2019, the Public Charter School Board created a Transparency Policy for District of Columbia public charter schools to implement and adhere to, below are key documents covering the operations of Shining Stars:
