Accountability and Resource Compliance

The only way to efficiently and successfully manage state reporting.


Accountability and Compliance Resources LLC exists simply to support the rights of students and parents to exercise educational choice. In its sixth year of operations, ACR supports charter schools and school districts throughout New Mexico in meeting all federal, state, and local reporting requirements. In doing so we assist our clients in maintaining compliance with a wide range of issues related to operating a publically funded educational facility. Our work helps to keep schools and districts maximally funded and operating in a publically accountable way. The business is made up of a three person leadership team including CEO and Senior Analyst Karen Baker-Jepsen, Senior Analyst Shari Herrington, and Business Manager Carolyn Rideout. Our ACR team members number just under 50 and are scattered all over the Land of Enchantment.
