The Charter Schools Development Corporation (CSDC) today announced the awarding of the first ever Tom Nida Charter School Innovation and Academic Excellence Award to three outstanding charter schools from across the country. The Tom Nida Award was created to honor Tom Nida, a nationally recognized expert and innovator in public charter school financing who served nearly two decades as Chair of CSDC’s Board of Directors before retiring from that position earlier this year. This competitive award recognizes and supports charter schools participating in one of CSDC’s facilities programs and displaying outstanding achievement in the areas of financial performance, academics and leadership and governance.
