The CSI Advantage
We believe that our singular focus on charter schools translates into tailored customer service, a keen understanding of the unique needs of charter schools, a consistently transparent and collaborative approach to all issues, and the ability to better advocate for charter schools’ needs. With CSI, your school will always be the “rule” and never the “exception.”
Our systems and staff are focused on providing tiered processes and actions based on school performance. Lower performing schools receive the additional assistance they require while higher performing schools enjoy increased autonomy, including an application process with fewer conditions. All schools receive CSI’s customized data analysis services, which provide schools the in-depth information they need to confidently guide decision making.
CSI's Board of Directors is appointed by the Governor and Commissioner of Education and reflects the diversity and stability needed to ensure long-term stability for our portfolio of schools. Lastly, CSI is designed to pass through a maximum level of funding directly to the schools and is therefore competitive both financially and with regard to the services offered to our schools when compared to many of the districts statewide.CSI's Offerings
