Great authorizers ensure the schools they charter deliver results. We understand great authorizing is both an art and a science. The 1,015 active authorizers in America differ greatly in their capacity. But they all share three functions in common: gatekeeping, overseeing, and evaluating performance. That's why we coach and consult with new and veteran authorizers around the country. Put our deep authorizing experience to work for you, and we'll help you grow and strengthen your capacity. We'll also help you develop the policies and practices needed to charter, oversee, support and hold accountable a portfolio of quality schools.
Create unique performance goals for your school or portfolio of schools. A-GAME works with schools, boards, and authorizers to create valid and reliable goals that measure each school's unique program. Authorizers can also join the A-GAME Community to network, share experiences, seek advice, and learn.
