What We Do

At Prestige School Solutions, our top priority is to effectively manage your school’s finances while maximizing your ability to make the most of every educational dollar. Our services are rendered in an innovative manner, utilizing cutting-edge technology that reinforces our principle belief that school accounting, budgeting, payroll and compliance is an interactive, feedback-driven, client-focused process.


From new schools embarking on their first year of operations to established schools that have been educating children for years or even decades, Prestige's expertise in schools ensures that your school will meet, improve and exceed goals year after year.

Financial Accounting/Budget Reporting/Compliance


Financial Accounting: Our team of school accounting professionals brings integrity and timeliness to school financial reporting. We provide on-demand, up-to-the-minute financial performance information that enables school leaders to make timely, informed decisions. Account balances are maintained in real-time, and financial and budget information is available at your fingertips via a secure, customizable, cloud-based dashboard accessible from any laptop, tablet or mobile device.

 

Budget Reporting: Prestige considers budgeting to be a necessary and critical function of charter school financial accounting and reporting. Very few providers invest the time with their clients that Prestige offers focusing on the budget creation and monitoring process. Our team of budget experts will help you set realistic, manageable budgets to maximize your resources and accomplish your goals.

 

Compliance: Prestige will establish and ensure ongoing legal and regulatory compliance through a systems-based, deadline-driven process to ensure that authorizers, financiers and stakeholders receive timely, accurate monthly, quarterly and annual reports. Our real-time reporting system is designed to detect problems before they arise and enable school directors and board members to strategically formulate action plans and solutions aimed at maximizing budget results and cash flow. 

Payroll and Human Resource Management


In 2015, the IRS assessed $43M in employer penalties for employer reporting and tax errors. Your Prestige team manages your school's complex payroll and payroll tax reporting functions and offers efficient payroll features such as an employee portal to update withholding and benefits information, electronic tax payment, payroll reporting by department or grant, and direct deposit. We also provide every client with a no-penalty guarantee, thereby eliminating any risk that the school will incur costly penalties and interest due to errors or delays in payroll reporting. 

Facilities Financing and Lending


Prestige Charter School Solutions provides facilities lenders, investors and developers with a comprehensive, borrower-paid risk mitigation and monitoring service designed to provide transparency and insight into the financial and operational performance of a charter school and to timely identify factors that potentially place investor capital at a higher risk of default or non-payment.

 

Prestige’s risk mitigation and monitoring service is a synthesized set of real-time and periodic reporting and feedback mechanisms that, during the early years of operation, identify leading indicators of weaknesses within charter school leadership, management, instruction, finances and governance. Early detection combined with intervention and effective remediation reduce investment uncertainty and potential loss.

Academic Improvement


Our team brings more than 30 years of successful classroom and school experience to help you. We also partner with national experts to diagnose academic achievement shortcomings and to develop strategies to help each child succeed.

These days, data determines success – and sometimes can determine your charter’s renewal. Each school faces distinct challenges, and identifying those challenges and how to address them can save months (or years) of time – time neither you nor especially your students can sacrifice.


If your test scores aren’t measuring up, or if they have plateaued, let us help!

School Turnarounds and Recovery


Existing charter schools may sometimes discover that they have gaps in critical areas such as financial reporting or compliance. In addition, transitions in school leadership often result in boards realizing that there are significant deficiencies in the charter school’s academic and/or business plans, sometimes leading to review and intervention by the authorizing agency. Prestige provides existing schools with assistance in every aspect of school improvement and corrective action , including academic programming.

 

Prestige is a proven partner for building or rebuilding your school’s back-office finances, academics, leadership and governance infrastructure. We help build new a new foundation for your school.

Enrollment and Marketing


Newly-chartered schools need to build first-year applications and enrollment; first year schools sometimes experience an exodus as families realize your school may not be what they envisioned; existing schools need to continually build community buzz to boost enrollment. Prestige School Solutions has more than two decades of experience connecting schools and classrooms with their communities. We help tell the stories that make families want to join your school.

 

The sooner we can address and attach the challenge of enrollment, the better. For newly-chartered schools, we recommend creating a Marketing Plan for enrollment at least nine months prior to opening. Once opened, strive to keep your school’s positive stories being told in the grocery aisles, the soccer fields and the churches. The best marketing is satisfied students and families!
