Charter schools and schools of choice
Bellwether has particularly deep expertise on issues related to charter schools and other schools of choice across strategic, operational, and policy issues.
Our leadership team includes individuals who have been charter school authorizers; founders and executives of high performing CMOs; funders of CMOs; board members and trustees of charter schools; and researchers and policy advocates who have supported the development of effective charter policies, support organizations, and accountability systems.
Our Strategic Advising Team works with many CMOs, schools of choice, and charter support organizations at all stages of growth to address critical issues related to expansion planning, financial modeling, organization design, human capital planning, and assessment of new opportunities.
We also have substantial experience with the nonpublic-schools sector, particularly inner-city private schools serving low-income students. Our work in this area includes research and support related to financial sustainability, public scholarship and tax credit programs, school networks, and school performance.
