About NACSA's Knowledge Core

NACSA's Knowledge Core is an interactive web-based knowledge and learning portal designed to serve the professional needs of both novice and experienced charter school authorizers in carrying out their complex work. From the basics of authorizing to advanced topics, NACSA Knowledge Core provides a rich array of core authorizing resources, training, guidance, practical tools, and professional networking opportunities to deepen NACSA members' knowledge and help them meet NACSA’s Principles & Standards for Quality Charter Authorizing. NACSA Knowledge Core includes short interactive courses and self-paced, multimedia learning modules; easy-to-customize templates, protocols, and policies; a dashboard to track individual learning progress; and a discussion forum and searchable peer network to facilitate knowledge sharing among members.

Online Training Available 24/7 

Short, multi-media online courses provide a refresher on essential authorizing standards as well as exploration of more complex topics. These engaging modules include discussion and rein­forcement of best practices and succinct topical interviews with leaders in the field.

Core Resources and Guidance Facilitate the Day-to-Day Work of Authorizing

Each online course module includes Core Resources—such as well-developed examples and templates for re­quests for charter proposals and charter contracts, performance frameworks, closure protocols, and more—so members have practical, ready-to-use tools at their fingertips. All documents and templates are also available as standalone downloads in addition to being part of a course module.

While some of the information provided in this system will remain open to the public, only NACSA members will have access to the full range of online courses, customizable templates, examples, and more.
