Cost Savings Programs
On behalf of its members, the Idaho Charter School Network creates cost savings through collaboration. As the “go-to” resource for school operations teams and administrators, the Network helps schools achieve cost avoidance and operating efficiencies when working with partners. Not only does the Network leverage the buying power of member schools via collaborative purchasing agreements, but charter schools can rely on the Network for leadership and best practice initiatives for consultations, advice and referrals.
Governance and Leadership
Board development and training is key to creating stable and sustainable schools. Idaho Charter School Network is committed to developing governance training and resources to improve charter school board effectiveness and to assist schools with board recruitment. Training, strategic planning and board recruitment programs may be developed for schools as needed.
