My name is Noah Kaplan and I joined CSI in March 2021 as Director of Legal and Policy Initiatives. Along with our Legal and Policy Associate, I oversee the charter contract and amendment process, provide policy guidance, and support schools to ensure ongoing compliance with legal and contractual requirements. I am a licensed Colorado attorney. Prior to CSI, I served as Contracts Governance and Compliance Manager for the Colorado Governor’s Office of Information Technology, and before that as in-house counsel for a national network of non-profit organizations. I was previously a Teach for America corps member and fourth-grade teacher in Phoenix, Arizona. I received my J.D. from Harvard Law School, an M.Ed. from Arizona State University, and a B.A. in Government and Spanish from The University of Texas at Austin.
