Welcome to the Charter Support Unit
Welcome to the home page of the Florida Charter Support Unit (CSU). The CSU was originally proposed by the Florida Department of Education (FDOE) in a large federal Charter Schools Program (CSP) grant that was awarded to our state. The objectives set forth in this CSP grant require the FDOE to provide a support structure for assisting new and start-up charter schools in the areas of administration, curriculum, finance and governance. Specifically the CSU is designed to “provide short-term, intensive, and targeted support for new charter schools.”
We are pleased to announce that the Florida Department of Education has contracted with Building Hope to implement the CSU project and provide these important services to new and start-up charter schools who have not yet gone through their first charter renewal with their district. To learn more about the services of the CSU, please visit our About Us page.
