Helping You Achieve Business Excellence

The League recognizes that business managers work hard to operate your school at the highest levels of efficiency despite funding challenges. The Business Services department supports member schools through timely consultation on facilities, financing options, compliance, operational and financial support. Our members rely on the League’s thought leadership through consultations, training, guidance, and partnerships.

Invest Wisely in Your Future

The Facility Planning Consult is one of our most valuable and sought-after service offerings. Our team is dedicated to your overall success and this opportunity to support your expansion, relocation, purchase, refinance, or new facility is critical to your success in today’s facility and real estate climate. This can be a make-or-break decision and process for your school. Let us connect all the dots for you in this complicated process.

Our Mission is to Help You

The League’s Business Service program has several offerings that can simplify your workload and get your school headed in the best direction quickly. These programs were developed as a direct result of requests from your peer charter schools across the state and they continue to evolve based on member feedback.


FACILITY PLANNING CONSULT — Sample*

We believe that there are four critical stages to the development of your facilities planning process. Discovery, Teaming, Analysis, Details, Communications, and Presentation. While needs and situations differ we believe that we can support your team in building a plan and alignment to that plan through this process.
