Charter School Facilities: A Resource Guide on Development and Financing.
This manual provides information to help charter schools navigate the facility development process, including worksheets that can be customized to suit a particular school's needs. Sections cover how facility planning fits into business planning for charter schools, review a process for assessing a school's facility needs, and summarize how to select a site and compare those found. Additionally, the manual includes an overview of construction and budgeting issues for a facility project, reviews sources of financing a project, provides a project timeline, and offers a glossary of terms to clarify technical issues in the facility development process. Appendices contain model forms for developing operating and capital budgets, balance sheets, cash flow projections, and a sample application for a National Cooperative Bank (NCB) Development Corporation charter school loan.
