Whether your organization is in start-up, growth, stabilization, or decline, Afton provides financial expertise to ensure your resources are allocated in alignment with strategic priorities that are financially viable in the long-term.
Afton’s Sustainability Planning work cuts across all stages of an organization’s life cycle. From start-up planning for schools, networks, and districts, to strategic downsizing initiatives for areas experiencing enrollment decline, we focus on ensuring limited resources are used most effectively to meet student needs. Afton believes schools, districts, and charter networks should undertake long-term financial planning to strategically align financial resources with thoughtful academic change initiatives. Combining long-term financial planning with a robust annual budgeting cycle promotes the long-term sustainability of critical academic initiatives.
Our approach to planning is led by academics. We take the time to understand what your school, district, or network is seeking to accomplish, and build a customized plan in collaboration with Finance AND Academic personnel. Through this, we aim to bridge the divide between Academics and Finance & Operations that so often exists, to co-develop a plan for sustainable success.
