Corporate Partner Discount Programs

One way in which the Association fulfills its role as a trusted agent is through establishing corporate partnership discount programs for charter schools. In order to assure schools that these programs are of real value, that they are legitimate, and that the companies with whom we are partnering are ethical, we have an extensive due diligence process before entering into a corporate partner relationship.

The Association also conduct periodic reviews of these relationships and services to ensure that the corporate partner companies are living up to the agreements.
