A Message from the GVSU Charter Schools Office:

Innovation stems from bold action. It is born from the desire to rethink current practices and acknowledge that better outcomes can be created.

In this year's annual report, you'll learn about the innovative resources, research and partnerships the GVSU Charter Schools Office developed that led to new solutions for K-12 learners, educators, board members, and parents. By acting boldly and putting the needs of kids first, the GVSU CSO proudly ensured teaching and learning continued across Michigan this year.
