We are thrilled to announce the launch of our brand-new Compliance Department at CSMC, marking an exciting new chapter in our journey!

Officially established in December 2022, this addition signifies a significant milestone in our commitment to providing comprehensive back-office management solutions to school leaders.

Why the Compliance Department?

The inception of the Compliance Department stems from a growing need within the educational sector. With the influx of one-time funds and the consequent increase in reporting requirements, our client partners expressed a need for specialized support. This department is our response to that call, ensuring schools can navigate these complexities quickly and efficiently.

Mission and Vision

Our mission is simple yet vital: to ensure our clients’ compliance with all local, state, and federal reporting requirements.

The vision for the Compliance Department: is to create a synergy between payroll, accounting, and school business management (SBM), ensuring fiscal compliance and peace of mind for our client partners.

Core Services

The Compliance Department specializes in two key areas: Reporting and Internal Controls. This includes preparing reports for local, state, and federal governments, such as CARES Act reporting, Interim Prep, CMDC, and Payroll Reconciliation. We are also excited to expand our services to support the Nevada region.

What sets our Compliance Department apart?

Three things: quality reporting, enhanced internal controls, and a renewed focus on customer service. Our team is dedicated to reducing the reporting burden on our clients, allowing them to focus more on their core educational mission.

Key Benefits

Our client partners can expect significant benefits, including the assurance that their reports are prepared, reviewed, and submitted accurately and on time. This not only ensures compliance but also provides peace of mind.

Meet the Leadership and Team

The department is led by Aaron Guibord, whose extensive background in compliance and financial management makes him an ideal leader for this initiative.

He is supported by a talented team, including Michelle Afenir, Anais Rodriguez, and Lindsey Littlepage, each bringing unique skills and expertise to the table.

Target Audience

Our primary audience includes internal departments and client partners, particularly those grappling with charter school reporting and compliance complexities.


With the launch of our Compliance Department, CSMC reaffirms its commitment to providing holistic, efficient, and compliant financial management solutions to the educational sector. We are excited about this new journey and look forward to its positive impact on our client partners.

CSMC is dedicated to providing the highest level of service to ensure your school’s success and compliance. Join us in this new chapter as we pave the way for a more efficient and compliant future in education finance.
