Charter Support Unit

Free service dedicated to supporting public charter schools.

Building Hope powers the Charter Support Unit (CSU), the most trusted resource in charter school technical advice and support. The Grant-funded Charter Support Unit provides a host of training, services, and resources free-of-charge to charter schools across the country.

Building Hope contracted with the Florida Department of Education in 2012 to develop the Charter Support Unit [CSU] to provide targeted and just-in-time no-cost support to new charter schools throughout the state of Florida. 

Since then, the CSU has expanded to provide services nationwide.
