Innovative Education Management (IEM) has been successfully developing and operating California charter schools since 1998. As a nonprofit, public benefit corporation, IEM is different from many management companies because IEM is the founder of the school. IEM works with the districts to gain charter approval and is responsible for every aspect of managing the school. Members of the IEM team possess essential management experience to successfully operate our Parent-Driven charter schools. Since its inception IEM has been instrumental in the opening and managing of charter schools and has provided consulting services to interested parent groups, school districts, and educators across the country.
