The Charter School Institute (CSI) is the State’s only non-district charter school authorizer, currently authorizing 43 individual charter schools located across the State.

Each CSI charter school has autonomy in developing policies and procedures for Gifted Education in line with State policy. CSI requires each school to develop a gifted education program plan outlining how they implement ECEA rules in their school.

CSI’s School Programs Department guides schools in implementing their gifted program plan and collaborates with schools to monitor implementation of key requirements of ECEA. Our systems of support ensure gifted student growth and achievement across our portfolio of schools.
