Friends of Education

Every charter school in Minnesota must be approved by the Minnesota Department of Education and have a sponsoring Authorizer who is responsible for oversight of all school operations.  Both of these entities monitor the charter school’s performance in meeting both academic and non-academic charter contract goals the school has established and they have approved. DaVinci Academy’s Authorizer is Friends of Education.

Friends of Education is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit Minnesota corporation, incorporated in 1999. Friends of Education is a member of the Minnesota Council of Nonprofits and is registered with the Minnesota Office of the Attorney General.

Questions regarding Friends of Education relative to its authorization of charter schools can be referred to R. Elizabeth Topoluk.
