Recent Last Week's Central Valley Regional Charter Meetings a Success

  • Print

September 28, 2012 Thank you to all who attended the regional charter leaders meeting last week. We held meetings in Fresno, Bakersfield and wrapped up with the meeting in Modesto.

These meetings are very important to us and we want to make sure this time for you is well spent. The Fresno meeting was sponsored by Zaner-Bloser. This is something new for regional meetings. It gives us the opportunity to provide lunch to members - so you can make full use of our time together and don't have run out of the meetings to grab food prior to heading back to your schools.

Sponsors must be Vendor Members so please let me know if you have an organization in mind for a future sponsorship. I do want to point out that there have been some significant staffing changes with the schools in the Modesto area. We had a great meeting and it was exciting to see some familiar faces and new ones as well. Anytime we come together as charter school colleagues, I gain something as I hope you do too.
