The Idaho legislature passed the Idaho Charter School Law in 1998. In the 15 years since the law was passed Idaho has seen 54 charter school open and seven schools close. As of the 2013-14 school year, Idaho has seven virtual charter schools, some of which have blended online and onsite capabilities. The remaining 40 charter schools in operation are “brick and mortar” schools.
