Facility Budgets

Recognizing that building projects require a particular type of financial projection and budgeting, our facilities finance experts are available to assist.

Staffing Reviews

People are most charter school’s largest expense — and most valuable asset. The CSU helps align staffing budgets to enrollment.

Board Support

School budgeting and understanding financial reports can be a new experience for volunteer board members. We help demystify the subject and build the governing board’s capacity to oversee a school’s finances.

Couldn't be happier
