National Charter Schools Facilities Survey Underway
- June 4, 2013
Currently in the United States over 5,300 charter schools are serving more than 1.7 million students in 40 states across the country. Starting last year, the Colorado League of Charter Schools took the lead on a comprehensive state-by-state survey of charter schools to better understand the charter school facilities landscape, including how charter school facilities are financed. The Colorado League of Charter Schools chose CiviCore as their technology partner to take on this complicated national survey.
Thus far, 14 states have participated in the survey. and over 1,400 charter schools have begun the survey. The participating schools have answered over 150 detailed questions on their school facilities and finances. This information is helping the charter school sector better understand the facilities landscape, including cost, availability and adequacy, for charter schools in participating states and nationally.
CiviCore will continue to work with the Colorado League of Charter Schools to add new states to the survey over the coming years.
