North Shore Community School's Authorizer
Osprey Wilds Environmental Learning Center, formally Audubon Center of the North Woods (ACNW), became North Shore Community School’s authorizer in 2017. Osprey Wilds started authorizing charter schools in 2003, and NSCS is excited to be partnering with them. Founded in 1968, Osprey Wilds is a leader in environmental education and renewable energy providing learning experiences to people of all ages.
A charter school authorizer is a public oversight entity approved by the state. The authorizer’s role is to hold a school accountable for the terms of its performance contract – the “charter.”
Osprey Wilds mission "to ensure quality academic and environmental literacy outcomes for Minnesota students through effective charter school authorizing" and vision "to authorize a portfolio of high performing charter schools that instill a connection and commitment to the environment in their school communities while working towards a healthy planet where all people live in balance with the Earth" complements NSCS’ mission and EIC curriculum.
