About the Eastbank Collaborative of Charter Schools:
Following the Hurricane Katrina disaster in 2005, seven principals formed the Eastbank Collaborative of Charter Schools” – or “ECCS” – to improve school operations in areas including legal services, facilities support, financial reporting, teacher recruitment, instructional technology and group purchasing. The major goal of the cooperative is to ensure the sustainability of the charter school movement by decreasing back office costs and providing a unified voice in interactions with local, state and national agencies. Further, the ECCS strives to make the schools within the Alliance and those ancillary members more efficient and effective in their operations so that more staff time can be focused on helping each school meet academic standards and goals. Presently, thirteen schools, comprised of about 7, 300 students are represented in the ECCS.
ECCS member schools do not discriminate in the rendering of services to/or employment of individuals because of race, color, religion, sex, age, national origin, disability, or veteran status.
