Training & Mentoring Services

Thanks to a generous grant from the State Charter School Board, and support from Zions Bank, UAPCS administers training and mentoring services to pre-operational and operational public charter schools. We offer training in governance, finance, facilities, administration, policy, Open and Public Meetings Act, marketing and more. We have training for board members, business managers, administrators, teachers, and staff. All training and mentoring is available at NO CHARGE regardless of membership with UAPCS. There is something for everyone!
