Rick Pressler, Director
For more than 20 years, Rick Pressler has served the public education community as a charter school founder, school leader, school board member, and adviser to schools and educational professionals throughout New Jersey and beyond.
His expertise has been sought by boards of education, school leaders, policymakers, school attorneys, the New Jersey School Boards Association, and the New Jersey Department of Education.
Collaborations with the Illinois Network of Charter Schools and the National Alliance of Charter Public Schools have given him the opportunity to work with educational leaders from around the country on issues such as special education, teacher training, and facilities financing.
After nearly 10 years as Director of School Services of the New Jersey Charter Schools Association, Rick has transitioned his school support services to a new consulting venture. Schools who have sought and benefited from the Association's support services over the years will find many of the same services offered here, along with a broader range of support in a service-dedicated organization.
We strive to help schools--boards, administrators, teachers, and families--achieve their goals and create sustainable learning communities.
All schools will receive the support they need to build capacity and sustainability, and to align their work with the values of their community.
To provide high quality consulting services that place schools and families first, while offering excellent value and ongoing support.
