What We Offer

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.”

-Chuck Malatesta, CEO, FORZA Education Management (Florida)


We continue to provide regularly scheduled webinars covering a variety of topics related to running a charter school. Search our library of over 250 previously recorded webinars or check out upcoming webinars on our website.


New this year, we will launch our podcast series, “Great Leaders = Great Schools.” By interviewing leaders of high-performing schools, Impact winners, and innovative schools, we bring to you best practices, fresh ideas, and shared experiences.

CSU Online Learning Courses

We continue to develop curated content around specific operational components of opening and operating a charter school. The courses are posted to our online learning platform; more will be developed over the coming months. If you have topics you think would be beneficial to you or others on your staff, please let us know!

Regional Meetings

Held twice a year in four locations throughout Florida, the agenda will be based on time-relevant topics and the needs of school and district leaders. These meetings will be an opportunity for school leaders to build their network, collaborate with others, and share successful best practices.

New Schools/New Leaders Collaboration Sessions

You are not alone! Monthly online meetings for new schools and new leaders will cover topics critical to understanding your first years as a new school or as a new charter leader. Meetings are held on the second Wednesday of each month at 10:00 AM EST.

Launch Year Collaboration Sessions

We will soon begin online sessions for leaders opening schools in 2023 to collaborate with colleagues and discuss the challenges and successes you’ve experienced in opening your schools. Expand your networks and share ideas with other school leaders from around the state. Meetings are held on the first Tuesday of each month at 8:00 PM EST.
