February 7, 2015 On January 30, CCSA's Government Affairs team welcomed twelve high level legislative and regulatory agencies' administrative staff, and representatives of Governor Brown's administration on a bus tour that visited three high performing charter schools in Sacramento. Throughout the tour, the guests personally experienced a variety of struggles charter schools face.

The tour stopped at three charter schools in Sacramento; Language Academy of Sacramento, Fortune School and Sacramento Charter High School. CCSA hosted guests from the Governor's Office, State Board of Education, the California Department of Education Public Schools Division, Office of Public School Construction, Legislative Analyst's Office, Assembly Education Committee, Senate Education Committee, and our charter schools.

After touring the schools and interacting with students, the visit wrapped up with a lunch at Sacramento High with charter leaders from the tour, Gateway Community Charter, and newly elected Yolo County Board of Education member and charter founder Matt Taylor.
