TenSquare

WHAT WE DO

TenSquare is a national charter school support organization that works alongside schools and staff to make lasting and measurable change. Based in the District of Columbia, with an office in New Orleans and projects in nine other states, TenSquare has practice areas in school performance, talent services, facility development, and authorizer/agency support. TenSquare team members bring academic, operational and management expertise from top tier schools, networks, CMOs and state agencies from around the country.

SCHOOL PERFORMANCE

We help schools and school systems achieve dramatic results. We work with school boards and their leadership teams to conduct in-depth performance audits; develop data-driven, actionable recommendations and strategic operational roadmaps; and provide targeted hands-on assistance to improve organizational effectiveness and student achievement—all of which lead to significant gains in school and organizational performance.

TALENT SERVICES

TenSquare’s on-the-ground experience building and leading some of the country’s highest-performing charter schools helps us identify and place quality school leaders, staff members and teachers that meet the needs of each of our respective clients. We draw on our extensive network of local and national relationships to recruit and place top quality candidates for charter schools.

FACILITIES DEVELOPMENT

TenSquare provides comprehensive real estate development services to its school clients. We provide turnkey support—services include: developing a project strategy, conducting a feasibility analysis of possible facility options, securing the site, assessing and arranging financing, overseeing the project design, and managing the project from construction through occupancy.

AUTHORIZERS AND AGENCY SUPPORT: FEDERAL, STATE, LOCAL

TenSquare partners with Federal, State, and Local School District and Independent Authorizers to provide research, policy review and development, third party application review, annual and high stakes charter reviews, and other support related to charter compliance and accountability. TenSquare is the national leader in providing receivership services for charter school authorizers.
