The administration of personnel salaries can be one of the toughest and most critical decisions of a charter school. Recruiting and retaining the highest performing teachers and staff is the key to top charter school performance. Some of the key questions in salary administration include:
How much should teachers be paid, and who should decide?
Should some of teacher pay be tied to performance, and if so how?
How should pay be designed to attract teachers to hard-to-staff positions?
What rewards other than pay should be part of the overall package for teachers?
This session will focus on how many charters have answered these questions and more. The key is what school and system leaders do with pay when they are free to use compensation as a tool to meet their goals.

Karen assists with how to maximize funding to support the academics and student needs through effective, efficient and compliant Charter School Business Offices. Charter School Success offers charter school consulting, training and back office accounting services.
Charter School Success began after Karen worked 8 years with Mosbacher Odyssey Academy in Galveston, TX. In those years, Odyssey faced many of the Texas Charter School challenges of money, facility and creating from scratch the “How To Book” on Texas Charter School Business Office. Under Karen’s direction, Odyssey Academy went from owing TEA and the IRS over $250,000 and a negative fund balance to a transformed school with a positive fund balance of $3.5 million. Odyssey was able to obtain a BBB- rating and completed a multi-million dollar bond issue, upgrading from a rented church school facility to an owned, newly renovated 73,000 sq. ft. facility.
Karen loves using her knowledge gained while working in the charter school industry and combining it with her 20+ years experience in corporate consulting to provide charter schools with the tools to become SUCCESSFUL!
