Hi! I am Stephanie Aragon. I joined CSI in December of 2019. As the Director of Policy, I provide policy guidance to CSI schools and ensure ongoing compliance with legal and contractual requirements. Prior to joining the CSI team, I was a Senior Policy Analyst at the Education Commission of the States where I provided research support to state policymakers across the country working on education policies.
I earned my Bachelor’s in Political Science from the University of Colorado and my Master’s in Public Policy with a concentration in Education Policy from the University of Denver. I attended a charter in CSI’s portfolio (go Wildcats!) for the bulk of my K-12 experience and found an early passion for the power of innovation in education. I pursued a career in education policy so that I could play a role in helping to ensure more students have access to the quality education they deserve. I am thrilled to work alongside CSI’s talented team and serve and support our diverse portfolio of schools.
