Ice Miller's independent K-12 school finance attorneys have assisted dozens of independent K-12 schools with creative tax-exempt financings over the years. Our attorneys have significant experience with the state and federal constitutional hurdles to overcome for faith-based school financings and have utilized multi-state and national bond issuers to finance many schools without a local issuer option.
Our charter school finance attorneys have helped to finance individual charter schools, multiple schools with a single 501(c)(3) sponsor, and systems of charter schools under common management (including management by nonprofit and for-profit education management organizations (EMOs)). Our attorneys appreciate the significant and varied state law considerations in charter school financings. Our experience with rated, unrated and start-up school borrowers gives us particular insight to the disclosure responsibilities unique to the charter school market.
