Important meetings and trainings in the San Diego region
September 30, 2011
There is an amazing governance training being offered to all of our members that is being presented by CCSA, MY&M and Procopio. Yes, that is right all of the experts in one room at the same time. This is an excellent opportunity for your board members to attend a high quality training at no cost. Classical Academy has offered to host at their personalized learning center located at 2585 Business Park Drive, Vista, 92081, on October 20th from 5:30-8:30, dinner included. So mark your calendars and let your board members know.
Special Education Workshops
We are hosting a series of workshops on special education beginning on October 27 . This series is presented by Fagen, Friedman & Fulfrost and will be hosted by Gompers Preparatory Academy. These workshops were designed specifically for charter schools teachers, administrators and staff to help charter schools provide quality and compliant special education services to their students. Topics will include:
- IEPs and delivering FAPE
- matters of conduct
- discussing disabilities.
We completed our regional meeting in San Diego last week. Members had a great discussion with Jed Wallace and Cynthia Bryant on their concerns and issues. We also discussed our accountability legislation and had an opportunity for charter leaders to share best practices. We wrapped up the meeting with some information and discussion on unionization efforts in San Diego and what resources we have available as well as some information on the process and how to handle it. Regional meetings continue this week in North and Orange Counties. Tanya Hoffman from the Sacramento Advocacy Team, Myrna Castrejón from Accountability and Alice Miller from Knowledge Management will all be joining these meetings to share information with us. I hope you can attend:
- San Diego North County Meeting on Thursday, Oct. 6 from 9-12 at Guajome Park,
- Orange County Meeting On Friday, Oct. 7th from 9-12 at El Rancho
