WHAT PEOPLE SAY

Brandon Brown

CEO

The Mind Trust

As a nonprofit service center, the Center for Innovative Education Solutions gives school leaders in Indianapolis a low-cost, high-quality option for strengthening their schools’ operational and financial capabilities while maximizing the amount of time school leaders spend on instructional leadership.

As a first year Innovation School Brian and Kim have been nothing short of AMAZING! They are both so kind and so very helpful! Many times we ask Kim questions not related to finance and she is always more than willing to find the answer we need. We LOVE working with Innovative Ed Solutions! Thanks for all you do!

I can't say enough positive things about parteneiring with CIES, specifically Kim Ballin and Brian Anderson. It has been a pleasure working with them. Their attention to detail and willingness to assist us is immeasurable. The individualized dedication to our corporation has made us feel like their only client which speaks volumes, for we know they work with many corporations. I would highly recommend partnering with CIES.

Circle City Prep

Innovative Ed Solutions is an incredible partner of Circle City Prep! As a small, start-up charter school there are an endless number of items on our to do list that can frequently become overwhelming. Innovative Ed provides us expert and practical support to ensure financial compliance components of our school are in order and in alignment with our academic model. Whether it's budget setting, expenditure tracking, monthly reporting to the Board, or completing our annual audit, the Innovative Ed team has been there every step of the way.

Tindley Accelerated Schools

By partnering with CIES, we were able to bring private sector experience and relationships from outside our education-sector bubble to tackle our most pressing challenge. As a result, we signed a facility deal that saves our schools nearly 40 percent on annual debt service costs and allows us to focus on giving our 1150 scholars the best education possible.
