Description of Duties:
Who We Are
The State Charter Schools Commission of Georgia is a state agency located in Atlanta, Georgia that operates as an independent authorizer for charter schools. The Commission was created by the Georgia General Assembly to enable increased school choice options through the development and support of high quality charter schools throughout the state. The Commission regularly reviews petitions for new start-up charter schools, and it also reviews the academic and overall performance of existing Commission charter schools to ensure academic and fiscal accountability as well as legal compliance with the terms of the charter contract. The Commission also works with charter school petitioners and operators to locate and develop resources and partnership opportunities with community stakeholders.
Who We Need
The Commission is looking for interns who are currently enrolled in graduate programs for education policy and/or education law and are interested in learning more about the charter school movement. Ideal candidates will demonstrate superior academic performance in their program of study; interest and knowledge in the charter school movement; excellent analytical, research, and writing skills; and a proactive attitude. Interns will be integrally involved in the 2013 Commission Petition Review Process by reviewing petitions, conducting research projects, and drafting reports. Interns may also be involved with reviewing the current performance of Commission Charter Schools and analyzing relevant data. Interns can expect to gain valuable insight into Georgia government, education law, the charter school movement, educational reform, and the workings of a state agency while simultaneously honing research and writing skills. Interns will also be privy to agency meetings, meetings with external stakeholders, and interviews with charter school petitioners. Stipends may be available.
The internship program will run June 1, 2013 through August 1, 2013, but start- and end-dates can be flexible. Interns will be expected to work a minimum of 20 hours per week.
