Teachers, school administrators, lawmakers and others are preparing to participate in Ohio's first charter school summit.
The two-day event begins Thursday in Columbus. It is designed to provide opportunities to take financial, professional and academic training; to listen to national experts; and to learn more about board governance, record-keeping and best enrollment practices.
Republican State Auditor Dave Yost is hosting the event. He says the idea is an expansion on trainings his staff has been providing to charter schools.
