Event Details

Overview

The 2013 INCS Charter Design Institute will provide in-depth training on charter school design for those interested in starting charter schools in Chicago and across the state. Get ready for an intensive two days featuring charter school tours, training, and presentations from charter experts and opportunities to dig into the work of charter school design with your design teams and peers. 

 

The INCS Charter Design Institute provided a comprehensive overview of the many areas involved in charter school design. For us, it was a perfect mix of inspiration, information and informal networking.
