Who We Are

Our mission is to provide long-term affordable facilities solutions
to increase the availability of high quality charter schools for underserved students.

WCSD is a Delaware charitable non-stock corporation and 501(c)(3) organization.

Affordable Facilities

WCSD works with charter schools to align program needs with budgets. We know that affordable facilities are sustainable, and support high-quality schools putting more money into the classroom.

High-Quality Schools

WCSD clients are some of the highest performing charter schools in California. Having a permanent facility encourages these schools to grow to serve even more students.

Underserved Students

WCSD focuses its investment in low-income communities to provide greater access to high quality public education options.

How we work: WCSD traditionally provides turnkey development services, in addition to project management and consulting services. WCSD oversees design, construction and closeout to ensure projects are delivered on time and budget.

  • Affordable: WCSD aims to keep ongoing facilities cost at or below 15% of per pupil revenue. WCSD leverages traditional loan financing, the bond market, New Markets Tax Credits, and state bond funds to lower the cost to schools so that more money can be directed to the classroom.
  • Expertise: WCSD has a bench of proven architects and contractors who have designed and built charter schools on time and on budget.
  • Connections: WCSD has established key relationships with public agencies to streamline approvals.
