The seven-member Board of Directors operates under the name of Foundation for Louisiana Students to reflect University View Academy’s philosophy that students come first. Charter schools, like other public schools in Louisiana, must comply with state laws governing public entities, including the Code of Ethics, Open Meetings Law, Local Government Budget Act, Public Records Act, and Public Bid Law. Charter schools must also comply with policies set by their authorizer. Like other public schools in Louisiana, charter schools receive letter grades through the state accountability system and take the same high-stakes state tests. Unlike other public schools, a charter school may be closed if it does not meet its academic, financial, and operational obligations by the end of its charter contract.
