CEI has been helping create and develop effective charter schools since the advent of charter legislation in the late 1990s.
From helping launch New York’s first charter school, Sisulu-Walker Charter School of Harlem (1999) to leading large-scale, federally-funding charter school improvement initiatives through the 2010s, CEI has been at the forefront of the charter school movement.
Our singular focus is on providing support to independent charter schools so that they can successfully meet the goals of their unique charter missions.
The CSO provides public charter schools with the support they need to operate and educate effectively in line with their school’s specific mission.
Within a CSO, the leaders of the individual schools continue to make all management decisions; CEI provides resources and tools that schools need to make the best decisions while also serving as a uniquely centralizing force for independent, public charter school educators.
Improve the capacity of educators to implement effective practices
Support the sustainability of successful charter schools through technical assistance
CEI is encouraging school leaders of independent charter schools to join our CSO.
There are two tiers of support for schools: affiliate and member.
