Our vision is to be a national leader in high-quality charter school authorizing. We seek to accomplish this through building a portfolio of high performing public charter schools using authorizing best practices that promote a variety of successful and innovative educational designs.

Partnership Authorization
CSI is called out in legislation to assist districts in implementing authorizing best practices. We welcome the collaboration and knowledge sharing with our district authorizer peers. CSI has provided direct support to more than eight Colorado school district authorizers to date and has ongoing collaboration with others. 

Colorado Association of Charter School Authorizers (CACSA)

As part of our efforts at promoting high quality charter authorizing, CSI is very involved with the newly developed Colorado Association of Charter School Authorizers (CACSA). Focused on empowering new and growing authorizers and continuing development of mature authorizers, CACSA seeks to:

  • Expand collaboration to further empower new and growing authorizers; 

  • Encourage continued improvement of mature authorizers to move beyond design and implementation into advanced practice; and

  • Provide access to statewide resources, professional development, and support for all authorizers.
