Celebrating 10 Years It's about great public schools.


City & State Systems Resources

As an operating charter school, you'll have to navigate many New York City and New York State systems. Below are a variety of resources to aid you.

Boot Camp Resources

Once a year, the Charter Center hosts a boot camp for charter school staff that are new to the sector. You can find resources from the 2014 Operations and Finance Boot Camp here and here.

Fiscal Controls and Integrity

Below are resources originally shared at the Fiscal Controls and Integrity for Charters panel discussion at the NYC Charter School Center in May 2014 in collaboration with Barr and Co. LLP, The Bronx Charter School for Better Learning, The Staten Island Community Charter School, Charter School Business Management (CSBM), the New York State Education Department (NYSED).

ELL Resources


Charter Schools do not need to adhere to New York State Education Commissioner’s Regulation 154 (CR 154) regarding English Language Learners. Some of the following resources are based on, or reference, the practices outlined in CR 154 but individual charter schools may create their own policies and procedures and should always follow the procedures approved in their charter. A Charter School LEA must implement the instructional program for ELL students approved in its charter.
