Upcoming San Jose Area Spring Charter Meeting Featuring DCP Alum Rock
March 30, 2012 Thanks for your feedback on the winter regional meeting. Based on your input, visiting a school site is definitely preferred (Latino College Prep Academy, our winter host, was a big hit!) and the end of May is a good time for a Spring meeting. So, we now have a date and, more importantly, a host school, DCP Alum Rock! David Herrera, DCP Alum Rock Principal, and his team will be giving us a short tour of their school with special emphasis on their learning lab. Come ready with questions and thoughts especially about computer-based learning. Please register and mark your calendars:
When: Thursday, May 24, 2012 at 10:00 a.m. - noon
Where: Downtown College Prep (DCP) Alum Rock in East San Jose
(note: DCP Alum Rock is co-located with KIPP Heartwood so we may have an opportunity to experience a little of both worlds!)
