Global Village Charter Collaborative
Global Village Charter Collaborative (GVCC) is a new type of organization based on the recently enacted Colorado Charter School Collaborative Act, C.R.S 22-30.5-602-605, effective August 11, 2010. The Act permits creation of public charter school collaborations to “exercise administrative control or direction in providing or operating specified functions, services or facilities for participating charter schools,” C.R.S. 22-30.5-603(4)(a). This new legislation allows for the creation of a public entity, similar to a charter school in nature, but developed for the purpose of supporting separate charter school organizations. GVCC is the sole member of each of the GVA Charter organizations, with an umbrella board comprised of the Board Presidents of each of the GVA schools. Each school is divided by legal and financial firewalls that protect the autonomy of the separate organizations, while still allowing for a close operational relationship.
GVCC will provide centralized back office services to GVA schools including the development, implementation, and sustainability of efficient key systems such as Human Resource Management, Marketing and Public Relations, Technology Infrastructure Management, Curriculum and Materials Development and Financial Management.
