Charter School Support Initiative
Charter School Support Initiative (CSSI) is an evaluation service for self improvement provided by the Colorado Department of Education (CDE) Schools of Choice Unit. The service is voluntary and independent of other evaluations such as those required for charter renewal and accreditation. Participating schools receive a comprehensive review of the school's strength and weaknesses based on the Standards and Indicators for School Improvement. Review the CSSI Handbook or the CSSI Q & A for more information.
