Meeting obligations and seizing opportunities

What We Offer


CSU presenters are available for in-person and virtual presentations on a wide range of topics of importance to charter school leaders, including governance, facilities planning, and best practices in accounting and fiscal management.

Document Reviews

Bylaws. Policies. Handbooks. Send us your school’s foundational documents, and we’ll provide feedback based on what we’ve seen work for other charter schools. In addition, the CSU’s resource library offers an extensive collection of templates.

Strategic Planning Facilitation

Ready to plan for what’s next? The CSU helps charter schools in Years 4 or 5 chart their course from good to great. Through surveys of staff and key stakeholders, followed by eight hours of planning sessions, we will help your board and leadership reflect on the school’s mission, vision, and history and set key objectives and measurable goals for the next phase.


Couldn't be happier

“We appreciate the Charter Support Unit’s attention to detail and continued assistance and support with opening and developing our schools. We couldn’t be happier with our partnership.”
