BCSI provides initial teacher training in its curriculum, continuing professional development each summer, and regular updates to their curricular and resource recommendations. Their collaboration offers schools the kind of information and experience that is ordinarily available only to large charter management organizations. The collaboration between OCAE and BCSI will focus on curriculum and consultation. BCSI is primarily interested in helping charter schools to develop and use quality curriculum and instruction, and has no direct financial interest in OCAE or any other affiliated schools. The curriculum devised by BCSI is not intended as a standards-based curriculum, but BCSI-affiliated schools have generally performed well on state assessments. BSCI schools in Florida, including Pineapple Cove Classical Academy and St. John’s Classical Academy, are rated A schools by the state of Florida’s A-F grading system.
