Why CSI?

We are charter-focused. We believe that our singular focus on public charter schools translates into tailored customer service, a keen understanding of the unique needs of charter schools, and the ability to better advocate for public charter school needs.

Our board is mission driven. Our board is appointed, statutorily required to be mission-driven, and politically balanced which ensures steady leadership of our organization and stable oversight of our schools.          

We offer autonomy in exchange for accountability. We offer support, flexibility, and transparent accountability to ensure our schools are in the best position possible to serve all students well.  

We adhere to and advance authorizing best practice in Colorado. CSI is called out in statute to serve as a model authorizer in the state and to assist school districts in the implementation of best practices. We continually refine our practice and work with state and national partners and practitioners towards this end.
