My name is Janet Dinnen and I have been with CSI serving in a variety of capacities since 2013. I currently serve as the Chief of Staff. In this role, I oversee our growing Communications Team and the data quality and reporting initiatives of our Data Submissions Team. I manage our new school application cycle and also provide operational support to our Executive Director.
I have worked in the charter sector for the past fifteen years. Prior to CSI, I was a secondary teacher and member of an administrative team at a Colorado Springs charter school. Prior to that, I worked with a charter management organization and a charter authorizer in Ohio. I received my bachelor’s degree in Secondary Education and my master’s degree in Measurement, Evaluation, Statistics and Assessment.
I love working at CSI because I believe in its mission, its ability and willingness to adapt to meet the changing needs of our schools and their communities, and its culture of continuous improvement. And importantly, I enjoy the diverse portfolio of schools, partners, and team I have the opportunity to work with.
