  We are a highly-engaged team of educators who advise and train schools on how to become and stay high-performing. We have a deep and diverse bench that meets regularly and are tightly connected in serving the schools we support. Because all of our schools are different—and serve different communities and needs—there is a tremendous amount of variety and challenge in our work. The problems we seek to resolve are complex and we need opinionated but open-minded individuals who can balance working on a team, work off-site frequently, meet deadlines, manage a regular reporting schedule, and use technology to increase productivity and performance. If you are a self-starter who doesn’t need a lot of direction to know what to do, but you deeply understand our mission of reform and respect our schools’ leadership and our efforts as a team—we want you! 

  If you are looking for an intellectual challenge and understand education data on the student, teacher, and school level; can interpret and communicate education data for any user in multiple formats; love to teach and share information on using data to inform good instructional strategies; and believe that every student deserves a great school you should apply for this job. You’ll find a workplace that values your contribution and your time, celebrates accomplishments, and rewards creative solutions to complex but vital issues. 

 CS Partners is a hands on, service-oriented company made up of educators with over 200 combined years of experience in public schools and who have been working for charter schools in Michigan from the very beginning! 

 Our focus is educational reform. We believe that educational service providers should be led by professional educators with experience in multiple forms of education and highly skilled business professionals. With that in mind we have created a School Performance Team to assist our school leaders and boards of directors in every aspect of school operations from curriculum, assessment, school climate and culture, special education, leadership development and support, compliance, facilities, and fiscal services. 

 We have created the 7 Indicators of Excellence which guide our work with our schools. Our employees are dedicated to the mission of student and school success. The employees understand and contribute to building a culture that is driven by a belief and a desire that every child deserves a high quality, safe and orderly school where students and families are held in the highest regard. In every location, every position supports one another, works collaboratively to solve problems, demonstrates a willingness to improve, and aspires to play an integral role in fulfilling the goals of education reform. All employees work in collegial environments that prize innovation and a solution oriented frame of mind to meet and exceed our goals. 

 Partner Solutions, a subsidiary of CS Partners, was formed realizing the need that many charter schools were interested in partial service management providing Human Resources, Business/Finance, Compliance, and other services. 

Our mission is to provide high quality and efficient human resources services to public school academies and day care centers so that the goal of educational excellence can be achieved. Some of our services include staff planning, recruitment, legal expertise, customized benefit plans, payroll, liability ownership, personnel auditing, and orientation services. 

 The staffs at both CS Partners and Partner Solutions work closely together in one large office building. Collaboration, communication and cross training are core tenants of our business environment. We work in partnership with one another and our schools to provide the highest level of service both in our interactions with one another and in the quality of the products and services we provide. We believe that strong positive relationships are the key to a successful business.
