Nora E. Flood
President

I like to say I am the "Chief Cook and Bottle Washer" here at the League. But in all seriousness, as President, I am often the public face of the League. My goal is to make sure that school leaders at the board and building level have the tools and resources they need to provide quality education to their students.  I provide resources and school-based support to leadership and governing boards of Colorado charter schools. I also work behind the scenes building relationships and creating partnerships to further the work of the League. I serve on the League’s Policy & Advocacy Team with a focus on increasing and/or maintaining equity in charter school facilities, funding and flexibility at the local, state and federal levels.

Lori Ventimiglia
Director of New School Development 

I am one of the very first people charter schools talk with as they begin exploring what goes into the epic journey of starting a charter school!  In providing copious (and free) resources and technical assistance; dispensing advice and offering guidance around strategy and making critical connections; I will always be on the other side of the phone, table, or email chain to help new school developers navigate the process of starting a school. My work with new schools goes beyond the early exploration phase as I work with them throughout “year-0” (as a school’s learning curve entails how to implement the approved charter application), as well as continue to provide support in year-1 and through the first contract renewal process. Additionally, I work with charter school authorizers to share resources and information on best practices in authorizing charter schools. Click to view full bio.
