Programs and Services for Members
The LAPCS is excited to offer its members many programs that will help in their endeavor to be successful:
Start Up Grant
In partnership with the Walton Family Foundation, the Louisiana Association of Public Charter Schools Association provides high-quality start-up grants to help establish charter schools serving significant low-income student populations. The Walton Family Foundation Startup Grant program supports the creation of public charters by providing grants to school developers as they launch new schools.
The Top Shelf
The success of a charter school greatly depends on its leadership. Given the scope of responsibility of charter school boards, it’s imperative that knowledgeable board members drive the school towards positive results for students, staff and the community at large. LAPCS recognizes the myriad of challenges faced by charter boards and has launched The Top Shelf to identify, recruit and train prospective and current board members.
Staples, the world’s largest office products company, has partnered with LAPCS as a one-source vendor with next-day free delivery and significant savings (up to85%) on office supplies, furniture and technology items, print and promotional products, and janitorial/break room supplies for all member charter schools.
