Cornerstone Charter Schools use a specific, process-driven approach in decision making. It ensures a high level of accountability and is local in nature. These layers define how we do our work (why we do our work is driven by purpose, vision, mission, and strategic objectives).

Our Decision Framework is a free enterprise decision-making system. We empower people to make decisions using our guiding values and principles as their framework. The role of leadership is to deter any written, set procedures from discouraging problem solving, creative thinking, and optimal results. Every decision is measured against five questions:



  • Will it reinforce excellence?
  • Will it improve student success?
  • Can we afford it? Should we afford it?
  • Will it improve stakeholder satisfaction?
