Welcome to the OAPCS Charter Marketplace!

The Charter Marketplace serves the needs of charter schools throughout Ohio and connects them with quality providers at a discounted rate. The Charter Marketplace is available only to OAPCS members and is designed to help schools save time and money.
 

How Does the OAPCS Charter Marketplace Work?

The Charter Marketplace is a network where OAPCS member schools can search, identify and compare companies that conduct business with Ohio charter schools. This OAPCS membership benefit serves the needs of charter schools throughout the state. By utilizing the Charter Marketplace, OAPCS members can maximize savings when they take advantage of the marketplace cost-saving opportunities, products and services.
 

How Are Companies Selected to be in the OAPCS Charter Marketplace?

All companies have been reviewed by our team through an extensive interview and referral process to identify key partners that will provide a wide variety of products and services for any member of OAPCS. These preferred companies agree to provide members with incredible services and rates to be part of the Charter Marketplace.
