Stage 6 - Facilities & Procurement

Location and Facilities for Your New Private School

Are your School Founders up for the challenge? The mechanics of starting a school can be challenging. In today’s complicated environment, the need to work smarter and be ready for the day-one of school opening is critical. With proper planning, founders can be prepared to start the school of their dreams, and manage costs and project development effectively, establishing a school for generations to come. Provided herein are our time-tested stages for starting a school.

In Stage 6 you need to find your interim/permanent school facility and either purchase or rent/lease or develop your building plans if you’re building your own facility from scratch. The Building Committee will lead this assignment. Check requirements of building zoning, class size, fire-building codes, and teacher-student ratios, etc. You should also take into account your mission-vision-philosophy and the learning resources. Rental space for the classroom can be obtained from unused schools, churches, park buildings, community centers, apartment complexes, and estates. When renting, consider the availability of additional space for expansion, and obtaining a lease with at least one year's notice for cancellation, with opportunity for alteration of the building and some protection against major capital expenses and a long-term arrangement with specified rent levels.
