JPS Solutions helps community leaders and nonprofit organizations create and expand charter schools, including developing charter applications, designing academic and operational programs and building effective Boards. JPS Solutions also helps charter schools successfully navigate the charter renewal process and interact effectively with their charter authorizers.
Among our successes are:
- We helped design and wrote charter applications for several successful charter schools, including:
We also advised the development teams of several charter schools, including Newburgh Preparatory Charter School (Newburgh, NY), New Dawn Charter School (NYC) and the Dr. Richard Izquierdo Charter School (NYC).
- We advised numerous charter schools regarding their charter renewals and wrote renewal applications, renewal charters, amendments to charters and other renewal-related documents for the following charter schools:
We also advised and/or co-wrote renewal applications for Enterprise Charter School (Buffalo, NY) and Tech International Charter School (NYC).
- We advised charter schools regarding expansion and replication, and we have helped charter school leaders and Board members interact effectively with their charter authorizers to amend their charters, expand their enrollment and resolve conflicts. We also helped charter schools collaborate with other charter schools and with school districts, including designing, co-implementing and/or evaluating several New York State Charter School Dissemination grant-funded projects in which successful charter schools shared “best practices” with traditional public schools.
- We conducted Board trainings regarding a variety of topics for the national Network of Independent Charter Schools and several individual charter schools. We also presented at several annual conferences of the National Alliance of Charter Schools, as well as at the Florida Charter Schools Conference, the Maine Charter School Founders Forum, the New York City Charter Center, the New York Charter School Association annual conference and the U.S. Department of Education’s Charter Schools Program.
