TLC’s Client Since 2003

SUNY-Charter-Schools-Institute-Logo The Charter Schools Institute of the State University of New York is The Learning Collective’s longest running client.  Since 2003, the Charter Schools Institute has regularly hired The Learning Collective for various projects including lead writer for charter renewal inspection visits – charged with evaluating the school and writing the report that is submitted to the university trustees – and evaluating proposals for new charter schools.

In 2010 the Institute was recognized as having the “Best Application Process” for approving new charter schools by the National Association of Charter School Authorizers.  The U.S. Department of Education featured the Institute’s policies and practices for new school approval, school oversight and charter renewal in the report, “Fostering Innovation and Excellence.”
