Services for Charter Schools
Bingham Greenebaum Doll LLP has supported the charter school movement for years. In 2001, our attorneys helped Indiana state legislators craft the law (Indiana Code 20-24) that today provides educational opportunities for thousands of Hoosier children in charter schools across the state.
Our extensive knowledge of the chartering process enables us to offer effective legal counsel for a variety of administrative issues including:
- Charter school formation
- Charter school governance
- Charter drafting and negotiations
- Public bonds (financing)
- Communications with charter school sponsors
- Collective bargaining
- Employee benefits
- Hiring/evaluating staff
- Non-discrimination policies
- School structure
- Tax exemption (IRS and Indiana Department of Revenue)
Due to this broad experience, we also have a deep understanding of the operations of universities and cities that sponsor charter schools. Additionally, we offer guidance to the Charter Schools Association of Indiana.
