Ridgeway Community School's
Charter Authorizer

Effective October 1, 2022 Innovative Quality Schools (IQS) is serving as Ridgeway Community School's authorizer.  An authorizer is a public oversight entity approved by the state to authorize one or more charter schools. An authorizer’s fundamental role is to hold a school accountable for the terms of its performance contract – the “charter.” The primary purpose of Minnesota charters schools is to improve all pupil learning and all student achievement (Minn. Stat. § 124E.01, Subd. 1). Through effective oversight, authorizers hold charter schools accountable for realizing this purpose. 

Laurie Schroeder is the Managing Partner at IQS.  She can be reached at 612-234-0900 or ; Jim Zacchini is Ridgeway Community School's Cadre Leader.  He can be reached at or 612-567-9139.
