Sacramento Area Charter Schools, by the Numbers

  • Print

November 24, 2011 Last week, CCSA announced that 100 new charter schools started-up last year, despite tremendous challenges. Recently I was working with a Sacramento-area charter leader who was curious about the number of schools operating in Northeastern California. Digging in to the numbers is one way to show the impact charter schools are having on the region's public school landscape.

As I put together this information, I thought you might be interested in seeing the numbers too. It gave me a sense that we are all part of something big!
