Rethinking Requirements: Federal Funding Made Easy(-er) and Aligned

Thursday, March 19 10:45 am–12:00 pm
SCC - 304

Join our session to better understand federal funding requirements, learn how other charters use this funding, and integrate new and existing requirements to better align charters’ accountability demands.

While a majority of charter funding comes from state sources, federal funding is also critical to supplement teaching and learning. Federal funding demands countless programmatic and financial reporting requirements. There are opportunities, however, to meet these obligations using existing practices and functions in your school. Participants will have the opportunity to better understand federal funding requirements, learn how other charters use this funding, and integrate new and existing requirements to better align accountability demands.
