Director's Note, March 18th: Programmatic Audit, CCSA Conference Early Release, Musical, and More!

Programmatic Audit TONIGHT at the Ventura County Board of Education, 6pm
Every year our administrative team presents an annual programmatic audit to the Ventura County Board of Directors who authorize our charter. At this audit, we present data on student achievement, our progress toward meeting our annual goals, and data on our school climate and culture. Consider joining us tonight in support of our school and to learn more about our process of program accountability! 

Participation in CCSA (California Charter School Association)
Last week we were able to send four teachers, two administrators, and our board president to the annual California Charter School conference held in Sacramento. Everyone who attended the conference left with inspiring ideas, and we are excited to bring them back to our whole community to benefit our families! It was also a wonderful opportunity to connect with legislatures and other charter leaders to discuss the importance of Charter schools as public school options for families in Ventura County. 

Women in History Presentation
Ms. Nicole, our middle school history and social studies teacher, coordinates a Women in History project every year. This year, 11 of her students will be presenting their projects in two mini-assemblies to be held on April 8th at 10:10 or 10:45. 

Early Release on Wednesday, March 20th
ALL Students will be released at 12:20 on Wednesday for additional staff development. Please do not park in the drop-off area between 12-12:40pm. If you need after school child care, please contact Extensions today or tomorrow! Our teachers will be discussing and providing feedback on certain areas of our Charter Renewal and engaging in professional development around alternative student assessments.
