We're working on a few new courses to be released soon

by Curtis Fuller -

We are excited to announce we are currently working on three new courses to be posted within the upcoming months: 

  • FTE Report Basics for Charter Schools - We are working with a consultant who advises charter schools on FEFP reporting issues to develop a basic course for school leaders and data management/registrar staff people.  
  • New Business Manager Bootcamp - Have you hired a new person at your school to manage your schools finances?  We will soon have a course available for those people to learn the basics of best practices, red book accounting codes and more! 
  • Charter School Succession Planning - The CSU has been working with attorney Kathleen Schoenberg to develop a succession plan guide.  This document will be available very soon, and we will be developing a course on how to complete the various tasks identified in the succession plan guide. 

Check back in the coming weeks to see if these courses are available yet.
