Facilities: For Charters Co-Located in DOE Buildings

The NYC DOE sets clear campus guidelines for schools co-located in DOE buildings whether they are district or charter schools. The DOE Division of Space Management Co-Location Handbook spells out the philosophy and protocols for shared campuses. It includes sections on the Building Response Team, Safety Planning, custodial services, and the building council.

For campuses with charter schools, the work of the building council is supplemented by a shared space committee.

OPT for Charter Schools

Managing transportation can be very challenging for new Charter Schools.  These two presentations from the NYC DOE's Office of Pupil Transportation (OPT) will make that task easier.  OPT Basics explains the structure of the Office of Pupil Transportation and how charter schools work with OPT; Charter School Transportation Overview has current information on topics including eligibility, MetroCards, yellow bus service, and special education needs.
