University View Academy is a Type 2 Charter School authorized by the Louisiana Board of Elementary and Secondary Education. That designation means the school is run independently and is free to be more innovative but is held accountable for improved student achievement. University View Academy is operated as a tax-exempt, non-profit school and the 7 member Board of Directors is free to make decisions about staffing, curriculum, student development, finances, operations and administration. Records of meetings are under Board Documents. Charter Schools are held to high academic, financial and organizational standards and face closure if student performance is consistently low.
