As a charter school authorizer and in line with best practice, CSI is responsible for implementing an accountability system that streamlines local, state, and federal expectations and compliance requirements while protecting a school's autonomy and minimizing the administrative burden on schools.
To this end, CSI has developed a compliance monitoring system that monitors school fulfillment of local, state, and federal requirements.
