LAUSD Renews Seven Charter Schools
March 14, 2012 All seven LAUSD charter schools up for renewal before the board last week were renewed. Congratulations to Magnolia, Celerity, Watts Learning Center and ICEF, which all had schools renewed!
Magnolia Science Academy 1, 2 and 3, Celerity Troika, Celerity Dyad, Watts Learning Center, and View Park Prep Middle School were all renewed for five years. Boardmembers Marguerite Lamotte and Richard Vladovic singled out Watts Learning Center as a shining example of a charter that has successfully educated low-income students of color and has created an exemplary culture of achievement in their school program. "This school is not in my district but I would just like to commend them for truly serving their community," LaMotte said at the meeting.
