Our Vision

Our vision is to strengthen and transform the charter school landscape to generate more high-quality options for children. Our mission is to provide scaffolded support and development in governance, leadership, and operations for school improvement.

Starting, leading, and overseeing a charter school is complex. We believe leaders know their organizational contexts and needs the best. We come alongside and partner with you to support, grow, and develop operational and governing systems. Our technology platforms were designed to optimally support high-functioning systems implementation.


Board Chats

Join our team and Minnesota charter leaders as we share out best practices and resources for building a strong organization. We feature local and national experts and allow plenty of time for discussion and questions.

Some of our recent discussions featured: understanding the student expulsion process, managing grievances, succession planning, and managing leadership and board roles and responsibilities.

What’s Happening

A Word

From Our Founder

“Being part of the movement to ensure education equity is my passion project. As former Board Chair of KIPP Minnesota and a school founder, I understand this deeply challenging work but most importantly, the impact it can make for children. For this reason, I founded CharterSource to support and grow high-quality schools. Whether guiding a new school design team or providing systems to operate more efficiently, our team supports initiatives so leaders can do what they do best – focus on teaching and learning. We lead and partner with the unwavering belief that we can achieve equity for our Minnesota kids.”

– Beth Finch
