The expansion application is for existing CSI schools that are seeking to expand the scope of their existing program and is used for both expansions and replications of existing CSI schools.
Contact Authorizing_CSI@csi.state.co.us for more information.
The expansion application is an evaluation of an existing charter school’s success, capacity of the existing school leadership to expand the scope of the current program, and strong student and family demand for the addition of high quality seats. If approved, they are typically treated as an amendment to a charter school’s existing charter contract and do not change the school’s existing charter term.
CSI develops customized applications for CSI schools seeking to expand the scope of their program. Each expansion application will be customized based on the proposed expansion, the school’s existing body of evidence (academic, financial, and organization performance over time), the time since the school’s most recent charter renewal, and any other relevant circumstances.
