Evaluation & Renewal

Charter School Support Initiative (CSSI) evaluation service

The Colorado School Support Initiative (CSSI) mirrors the Colorado Title I School Support evaluation process and CDE’s School Quality rubric.  Specially trained teams of education experts provide schools a comprehensive evaluation based on The Standards-Based Teaching/Learning Cycle (second edition) research basis and the Colorado Standards and Indicators for Continuous School Improvement. For charter schools, CDE has added a 9th standard covering board leadership and an 10th standard addressing charter school financial practices.
