As is written in statue, CSI has the authority to approve and deny applications as well as to revoke, renew, or nonrenew charter school contracts. CSI is also required by statute to monitor the operations of Institute schools to ensure compliance with state and federal regulations.
In alignment with these statutory requirements, CSI’s Board adopted the School Compliance Policy to serve as a guide for addressing and remedying situations of noncompliance before getting to non-renewal or revocation of a charter contract.
The School Compliance Policy, adopted by the CSI Board in 2011, outlines how to address situations of noncompliance. CSI’s staff compliance procedures serve as a guide for applying the CSI Board’s policy.
When schools are found to be out of compliance with local, state, federal requirements, a school is notified in writing by CSI. This notification includes an identification of the area(s) of noncompliance as well as the required actions and timeline necessary to remedy the situation. The severity of the issue will determine what level of notice is issued to the school.
The following are levels of issues that may be issued to any school found to be out of compliance:
1. Corrective Action Notice
2. Notice of Concern
3. Notice of Breach
4. Charter Review
