Providing Management Services for Michigan Charter Schools

CS Partners is a company composed of experienced educational service providers. We are a hands on, service oriented company made up of educators with over 200 combined years of experience in public schools, and we’ve been working for charter schools in Michigan from the very beginning! The CS Partners staff has been intimately involved with the formation and ongoing operation of charter schools across lower Michigan.

Our focus is on enabling each of the schools we work with to become highly successful. We have created the 7 Indicators of Excellence which guide our work with our schools, our evaluation of school leaders and the board of director’s evaluation of our services. A successful school focuses on the whole child to address the student’s intellectual, social, emotional, developmental and physical needs. In addition, the operational aspects of a school must also focus on meeting the needs of all students.

We believe that educational service providers should be led by professionals with experience in multiple forms of education and operations. We also believe that a particular school reform or school model is not as important as professional leadership and the use of research-tested methods and structures. We believe that professional educators know how to be successful in teaching children, but they may need assistance in handling the administrative and operational aspects of day-to-day work in a school. With that in mind we have created the teams to assist our school leaders in every aspect of school operations from curriculum, assessment, school climate and culture, special education, leadership development and support, compliance, facilities, marketing, fiscal services, human resources and more. Educators in charter schools need a clear mission, a strategy to implement that mission, the freedom to work, and the time needed to focus on students, teachers and parents. It’s our job as an educational service provider to help every step along the way to success.
