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!

 How can we help?

Pre-Operational

Our pre-operational training, with training from the SCSB, covers all requirements of the state regarding opening a charter school. Those training requirements can also be found on the SCSB website here.
