The 5 Essential Steps to Charter School Facilities Planning

Charter school facilities planning can be daunting. If you think that finding the perfect facility for your charter school seems like a huge, complicated undertaking, you’re in good company. Across the U.S., facilities are, by far, the greatest challenge faced by charter schools. The planning and financing of any facility project is complex, time-consuming, and has the potential to distract your team from its core mission: serving your students.
Last month, we shared our new manual, The Ultimate Guide to Charter School Facility Financing … and we just couldn’t stop there!  We thought it was important to not only provide helpful information on charter school facility financing, but also create a practical resource for charter school facility planning as well. This handy, information-packed new checklist, The 5 Essential Steps to Facilities Planning, will help guide you as you move towards realizing your facility expansion or relocation goals.
