LAUSD Charter Board Meeting: Feb. 6

Two affiliated charters are voluntarily petitioning to revert to traditional LAUSD schools: Chandler Learning Academy and Emelita Academy Charter. Reasons cited by Emelita include: “the elimination of the Block Grant funding source for new Affiliated Charter Schools, the responsibility for creating a Local Control Accountability Plan separate from the District, and the responsibility of updating the local indicators for the California School Dashboard.”

Also on the agenda, two charters, Central City Value and Ivy Bound Academy Math, Science and technology Charter Middle, are recommended for renewal, and one new South Los Angeles charter, Learning By Design Charter, is recommended for approval. The entire agenda can be found here.
