School Accountability

CSI is committed to fostering high-quality charter schools. We understand charter schools and advocate for their success. We offer support, flexibility, and transparent accountability to ensure our schools are in the best position possible to serve their students. CSI provides its schools clear expectations for academic, organizational, and financial performance and allows schools the freedom to choose how best to achieve those expectations.
The CSI Annual Review of Schools (CARS) is used to evaluate and accredit CSI schools annually based on academic, financial, and organizational performance. CARS builds off of the academic expectations included in the state’s accountability system by adding additional academic indicators and including measures of financial and organizational performance. This evaluation:

  1. Adds to the body of evidence that is used to make authorization decisions
  2. Determines the school accreditation rating that is primarily used to inform authorization pathways
  3. Determines the level of support/intervention to provide to the school
