My name is Michael McManus and I joined CSI in July 2019, as the Career Pathways and School Programs Coordinator. In this role I will provide training, technical assistance, and compliance monitoring for postsecondary readiness initiatives including concurrent enrollment, ASCENT, Career and Technical Education, Individual Career and Academic Planning, Drop-out Recovery, and graduation requirements, and related program grants. Prior to joining CSI I was the Director of Academic Advising and Retention for Arapahoe Community College. I am originally from Rhode Island, have lived in Colorado since 2006, and earned my B.A. – Political Science from the University of Rhode Island, and my M.A.T. – Secondary Ed. Social Studies from Rhode Island College. I am excited to partner with our schools to build new opportunities that position our students for success in the classroom and beyond.
