At its July 2016 meeting, the Georgia Board of Education approved Charter School Solutions as an authorized provider of governance training for charter schools.  Recent changes to Georgia law require all charter schools to receive governance training on an annual basis from a provider on the SBOE’s approved list.  We are excited to be on that approved list.  For more information about governance training from CSS click here or contact us through our contact form or by phone at 404-992-0130.

New Options in Governance Training

Tuesday, September 20th, 2011  |    |  No Comments »

For years CSS has offered governance training to our clients.  Recently we have upgraded this service to include two types of training.  Our basic “Charter School Governance” covers many of the basic issues that all charter school governing boards need to be up to speed on (open meetings/public records requirements; understanding school budget documents; evaluating and supporting the school leader; understanding the difference between governance and management; etc.).

In addition to our more basic training, we now offer “Governing for Excellence” training.  This training is for more experienced schools and/or boards.  It hits the highlights of basic governance issues and then goes deeper into  the ways that charter school leadership (board and administration) can work together to take the charter school to higher levels of operational and student success.  For more information about both types of governance training click here.

CEM Services Offered

CSS is pleased to announce our new Compliance and Efficiency Management (CEM) services. These services have been specifically designed to help your school avoid the types of issues that often sidetrack or derail an otherwise successful charter school.

With nearly a decade of experience in the charter school sector both in Georgia and nationally, we have seen several charter schools fail or suffer serious set-backs because they were not prepared to deal with issues that they otherwise could have avoided or easily handled. The issues that damage charter schools usually do not result from a lack of student achievement. Rather they often involve issues such as using incorrect revenue or expense assumptions to create an annual or long term budget; Lack of a sufficient plan to deal with turnover on the board of directors; Insufficient marketing plans; or, unforeseen facilities issues.
