Professional Services

RSS works in three general areas: School Turnaround, Research, and Operations Management for independent Charter Schools. Our most recent engagement is the publication of syndicated research with seven partners, including IDEA Public Schools, Victory Schools, Propel Schools, and the Noble Network of Schools, among others, to produce industry benchmarks on the organizational, financial, and academic  structure and performance of School Management Organizations.

In addition, Renaissance’s senior staff present at professional conferences on issues related to school turnaround, academic instruction, board governance, working with SMOs (School Management Organizations), and SMO finance. Richard O’Neill, Renaissance’s president, is widely considered an expert on school finance and school turnaround. Lin Gordon is a recognized expert in reading.
