June 16, 2011 Arturo Delgado has been appointed as the new Los Angeles County Office of Education (LACOE) Superintendent of Schools. He most recently served as the superintendent of San Bernadino Unified School District. Read more about him in the LA Times' article.

Also, Katie Braude has been appointed as the new Board Member replacing Leslie Gilbert-Lurie. She is very familiar with charter schools having been one of the leaders of the movement behind the Palisades Charter School complex, the first K-12 public charter school complex in the country.

Congratulations to the Wisdom Academy for Young Scientists (WAYS), which had its petition renewed by LACOE on June 7. The LACOE board will act to approve or deny the petition for International Charter School of La Mirada/Norwalk on June 28.
