The Benefits of Sponsorship. The Advantages of Choice.
As one of the original sponsors of charter schools in Ohio and one of the largest in terms of both schools and student enrollment, we have wealth of experience and a strong leadership team to help you open a new school.
We have 15 years of experience in partnering successfully with charter school start-ups, with staff who have been leaders of the charter school movement in Ohio since its very beginning in the late 1990s. We are also the largest sponsor of e-schools in Ohio. OCCS is designated by the University of Toledo to provide community sponsorship and oversight, and is the sole community school sponsor designated by a university in Ohio. Essentially that makes us better prepared to meet compliance and focus on the success of students. We seek partnerships that allow schools to not only thrive but innovate, and hold high standards for ourselves and others. We offer robust technical assistance in finance, special education, academics, and more.

Charter schools introduce an unprecedented level of accountability into public education. If a public charter school is not improving student achievement as laid out in its charter contract, it can be closed down.
