Making Your Job Easier
The Colorado League of Charter Schools offers its members a variety of resources for school operations teams, business managers, I.T. professionals and administrators. Not only do we leverage the buying power of member schools via collaborative purchasing agreements, but charter schools also rely on our thought leadership and best practice initiatives for consultations, advice and referrals.
All along the way, the League fosters networking among charter schools as a way to compare notes about their experiences, policies and outcomes. This helps raise the bar for everyone.

The League offers charter school business office professionals access to timely information and articles via Charter Focus, a quarterly journal for charter school business managers.

Charter School Friendly Vendors & Service Providers
Retailers such as Costco offer substantial discounts because of bulk buying power. Similarly, the League offers discounts as high as 55-80% on a whole array of charter school supplies, services and equipment—leveraging the buying power that would constitute the state’s biggest school district if so categorized. Just as with the Costco model, League members pay a very reasonable membership fee to save money on everything from cheese to copy paper. For those needing to put into place everything from employee benefits programs and commercial insurance to buying state-of-the-art technology, the League provides guidance and money-saving opportunities. In select situations, the League offers access to free consulting to set up compliant programs in such areas as employee benefits, employment policies and handbooks, and job descriptions. (more...)
