Today we are thrilled to celebrate our Vice President of Research and Evaluation Karega Rausch’s appointment to serve as the Chair of the Indiana Charter School Board (ICSB). The appointment recognizes his leadership in the field and commitment to great schools for all children.

Karega is a charismatic, thoughtful leader and champion for equity whose experience as a former teacher and authorizer will help the ICSB continue to grow high-performing schools throughout the state. One of his biggest strengths is his ability to focus research on impact and driving action, which he will no doubt carry to this position.

Here at NACSA, Karega will continue to lead the groundbreaking Quality Practice Project, an effort to create an empirical and evidence-based understanding of authorizing practices and their direct impact on student outcomes.

Join us in congratulating Karega!
