Formed over two decades ago, we helped write California's first charter school laws in 1992 and have been hard at work every since.
We offer expertise in all aspects of charter operations, including charter finance, policy, governance, and more.
While we receive the occasional grant to launch a new program or service, the vast majority of our annual budget is derived not from donors and philanthropic sources but instead from our large base of dues-paying CSDC Member schools.
This gives us a degree of freedom and independence unparalleled in the charter world. We exist to support charter schools and the students they serve--not outside interests and agendas.
