The Eastbank Collaborative of Charter Schools (ECCS) is a formal alliance of 10 public schools in Orleans Parish which promotes public charter schools as a permanent option for children. The ECCS is a 501c3 working to maintain the maximum autonomy of each member school, while protecting the long-term structure, durability and operation of all charters in Louisiana. Also, ECCS is a voluntary-network dedicated to keeping principals and their charter boards “in charge” through information and advocacy, shared services, and reduced costs.

Mission: To ensure the survivability of the charter school reform movement in New Orleans so that parents and students can have access and choices to high quality schools.
