   New Schools for  
CSP Charter Start


CSP's Charter Start initiative is an effort to increase the number of high-performing charter schools in the urban core of the Twin Cities.  Through CSP Charter Start, the CSP team works with charter leaders and emerging civic groups to start new charter schools and replicate highly successful schools – both home-grown Minnesota models and national models. Each year, CSP invites a select group of pre-operational charter schools that demonstrate high potential to serve at-risk students in the Twin Cities to participate in this rigorous  multi-year iniative. 
The character of our Charter Start work with these emerging schools varies according to their needs.  CSP will work with each Charter Start school in close partnership, providing technical support, consultation about academic, assessment and human resource frameworks, and financial oversight.  Perhaps most important, CSP assumes the role of a trusted ally, offering ongoing counseling about the diverse political, practical and human challenges that confront every nascent charter group during their pre-operational journey to opening.
