Consent, Consent, Consent....Congrats to new charters!
February 10, 2012 In what was expected to be a particularly controversial Board meeting this past Tuesday, 5 new charters and 2 renewing charter were approved on consent!
Congratulations to the new charter schools: Citizens of the World 2, Citizens of the World 3, City Charter Middle, Math and Science College Prep and Charter Academy for Science and Engineering and to the renewing schools: Bert Corona Charter School and Para Los Ninos Charter. One takeaway from the meeting was that when on consent, the Board does not want to hear public speakers. So if you're up for approval for a new or renewing school in the near future, be prepared to be nimble with your public speakers.
