With charter schools increasing their presence in public education in recent years, an organization that supports charters is holding training sessions for members of the boards that govern the schools.
Charter schools are public schools run by independent organizations with approval from state or local education officials.
The Louisiana Association of Public Charter Schools is hosting two seminars - one in New Orleans and another in Baton Rouge - for governing boards of charter schools.
The New Orleans seminar will be held Friday morning at Tulane University's Lavin-Bernick Center.
On Saturday morning, the association holds a seminar in Baton Rouge at the Louisiana Resource Center for Educators.
