TCSA has two new free webinars planned for next week that should be of interest to both charter CEOs and administrators as well as board members.

On Tuesday, September 10th at 11:00 a.m. please plan to join Ryan Alexander for Introduction to Civic Builders. Civic Builders, a non-profit facilities developer, offers very favorable terms to charters looking to establish a permanent facility presence in their community. Ryan oversees the Facilities Investment Fund, a $100 million loan fund formed in partnership with the Walton Family Foundation and Bank of America to support high-performing charter schools nationwide with their permanent facilities initiatives. The program offers very favorable financing terms to charter schools and has an established track record of working with charters in Texas. If you are thinking about expanding or upgrading your current facility, this is a webinar you don’t want to miss.

On Friday, September 13th at 10:00 a.m. please plan to join us for How to Have Great Governance Board Meetings. Great governance board meetings don’t just happen – they are a result of detailed planning, collaborative communication, consistent implementation, and knowing to expect the unexpected. The webinar is designed for both charter CEOs and board members and will cover the following topics:

  • Planning for meetings throughout the year
  • Crafting a collaborative agenda
  • Reports and data that board members need to see
  • Monitoring SMART student outcome goals during the meeting
  • Rules and best practices for open meetings and closed executive sessions

Can’t make the live webinar presentation? No worries – these webinars will be recorded and offered for free as part of our ever-growing collection of on-demand training offerings.

Speaking of free – all of our on-demand, commissioner credit approved content is now free to TCSA members as part of your 19-20 membership renewal! This is a convenient option for those board members and administrators who want the option of a 24/7 training and credit acquisition platform.

Did you know that TCSA also does live board training? Last year we trained over 30 charter holder boards. The trainings are informative, interactive, and enjoyable. Contact Dr. Bruce Marchand at TCSA to get on our training calendar!
