    Teacher of the Month Rubric: Ms. Carol Nicholson

    Mrs. Nicholson is dedicated to the success of all her students, and she exemplifies this by coming to work early everyday and being one of the last to leave. She continues to grow as an educator, and is eager to hone her craft by consistently seeking the advice of the leaders within our building. We are lucky to have her as a part of our team.

  • Staff Member of the Month:
    Ms. Michele Edison

    Staff Member the Month Rubric: Ms. Michele Edison

    Ms. Edison is the calm before the storm. She holds herself to high standards as it relates to dealing with our students daily. Ms. Edison is an amazing person and has truly showed her presence in the transformation of classrooms this year. Every classroom she has touched down in has experienced what I like to call "The Edison Effect"...she helps students maximize there potential with patience and consistency; allowing the classroom teachers she works with maximize instruction time. We love you Edison and you are a game changer for Lloyd Bond.

What is a Charter School?

Charter schools are tuition-free public schools of choice, but each charter school is governed independently. Unlike traditional public schools, every charter school must demonstrate success, or it will lose its charter.

CSUSA is one of the largest providers of charter school management services in the nation. CSUSA manages private and municipal charters for grades Pre-K through 12.
