Lakeview Academy has been working with Charter Solutions for a while. It has been a great experience. Charter Solution's staff and services are top notch, very professional, and affordable. Consulting services, IT services, HR services are second to none. Their large bank of knowlege, staff, and services is exactly what charter schools can use to build their charter. I give Charter Solutions an A+!Cory Thorson, Former Board Member, Lakeview Academy
It has been my pleasure as Governing Board President of Paradigm Charter Schools to work with Lincoln Fillmore and Charter Solutions for the past two years. At the time we started to work with them, we had not met a couple of our building bond covenants (for two years in a row) due to some accounting errors. We needed to turn things around quickly. Charter Solutions was able to train our business manager and work with the administration to turn our financial situation from distressing to amazing. We could not be more pleased with short time we were able to get our financial house in order and our Bond Holders are relieved.
Charter Solutions has also provided top notch Governing Board training every month and has offered great support, systems, templates and advice. I appreciate that they provide us with the facts and leave the decision making and accountability with the Board. Every volunteer board should be so lucky to have such great training and support. I highly recommend their services.
We had a CPA, an attorney, and a teacher on our board, and had hired an experienced charter school principal. We were unsure if we needed what Charter Solutions offered. But they have proved their value. Hiring the right principal and engaging Charter Solutions—two of the best decisions we made.Robb Enger, Former Board Chair, Providence Hall
Charter Solutions has years of experience supporting schools in managing school affairs. I have personally worked with them for more than 10 years. Over those years they have provided exemplary service and invaluable direction to me and my school. Charter Solutions is well designed to meet the needs of any school and they have the staff necessary to provide experience and knowledge for any situation.Rick Veasey, Director, Lakeview Academy
I wish all of our schools had these kinds of controls in place. Once again, it appears as if you are doing a wonderful job.Nate Johansen, Utah State Board of Education, Internal Audit
Thanks Lincoln and Max! You are the best reference guys around! You’re like Encyclopedia Chartanica!
As the former Board President of Lakeview Academy, I worked with Charter Solutions and their employees for almost 5 years and I would recommend their services to any charter school without hesitation or reservation.
When I started working with Charter Solutions, I was struck by their collaborative approach. Rather than assuming they knew what was best for our school, they took the time to understand our school’s charter and the needs of our school and then make recommendations accordingly.
They frequently went above and beyond to assist us when difficult situations arose and proved to be a valuable sounding board for the Board of Trustees on various topics.
Charter Solutions was instrumental in assisting our school with easing and navigating the many bureaucratic requirements associated with running a school. This has freed up the Board of Trustees and key staff members to focus on what matters most to us – educating children!
The professionalism and knowledge level of their staff is invaluable as they thoroughly and accurately performed the various state and federal reporting, HR, business and financial services necessary for our school.
Even with all the services they provide, we have still been able to reduce our administrative cost allowing us to put more of our education dollars into our classrooms, curriculum and programs thus serving and meeting the needs of our students more fully.
Gateway Preparatory Academy has benefited from the services of Charter Solutions since our inception six years ago. They have helped guide us from a very shaky financial standing to firm ground. they have provided board training, human resources services, support in salary and benefits, policy development, federal grants management, payroll, and regular consultation about all things charter. They have been a key to our success and their services are much appreciated.Rob Lee—Former Director, Gateway Preparatory Academy
Charter Solutions has been invaluable to our Academy. From the very beginning, when we were writing our Charter, to five years after opening our school, they have been instrumental in every step toward our success. They have helped us with everything from advising and training our Board, to developing sound policies, to providing fantastic business managers that take care of all our HR and financial needs. I can’t imagine trying to go through all of those first year struggles without the expert counseling and support that we got from Charter Solutions. I would recommend this company to any charter school-whether you are just getting started or are already established- you can only improve and succeed with Charter Solutions on your team!Shelly Taylor—Board Chair, Excelsior Academy
Our school has been working with Charter Solutions for a number of years. Whenever we are facing tough issues, we know we can count on Charter Solutions to offer pertinent training and help us to come to a good resolution. It is nice to have a team of professionals who are experienced in the education field. They stay up-to-date on important issues with the State Board of Education to keep us informed. The services they provide to our school are invaluable. They make everybody's job easier.Amy Rice—Board Chair, Gateway Preparatory Academy
