As a charter school authorizer and in line with best practice, CSI is responsible for implementing an accountability system that evaluates CSI schools’ academic, financial, and operational performance (e.g., “CARS”). As one component of measuring operational performance and to help ensure compliance with local, state, and federal requirements, CSI has developed the annual Organizational Submissions and Audits process.
The Organizational Submissions and Audits process intends to evaluate each school’s compliance with key laws, regulations, policies, and contract provisions, and looks to ensure that minimum requirements are being met while still protecting a school’s autonomy. CSI has drafted and compiled resources to assist CSI schools in meeting minimum requirements. The submissions may change from year to year depending upon changes in law, rule, or policy.
