Google Apps for Education

Register for this free webinar at:

Google Apps for Education (GAFE) is a free version of the Google Apps suite which typically costs business users $60 per user per year which is offered to schools and non profit organizations. The tool provides a free-cloud based email solution along with powerful collaborative tools for creating documents, websites, and more. The service is CIPA compliant, and can be used for staff and/or students. This presentation will walk through the basic tools available with GAFE, how to submit an application for your school, and the basics of how to get it setup with your domain.

New Hire Checklist


Many schools are now working to hire new staff for the 2015-16 school year. Do you have a process in place to ensure you complete all of the forms and processes for each of your new employees? The CSU has a sample checklist to use when you are hiring new employees.

Upcoming Webinars

The CSU offers webinars, typically on Thursday mornings, to assist school leadership with their professional development, and the operations of the charter school. Click on the name of the presentation to register for the presentation.

We are about to start working on scheduling webinars for next year. If you have topics you think would be beneficial, please email them to Curtis Fuller and we will work on trying to schedule a future presentation.

The CSU is a free support network funded by the Florida Department of Education whose primary mission is to serve all charter schools in their first five years of operation. The CSU also provides many free services to more established charter schools across Florida, including our free professional webinar series.
