Charter School Renewal Coming to Consensus


Anxieties surrounding the renewal process of Santa Barbara Charter School were all but quelled at Tuesday’s school board meeting. After considerable tension plagued the two October meetings, ongoing discussion between district officials and charter school directors is “making great progress,” Assistant Superintendent of Elementary Education Emilio Handall said in an update. Conditions outlined in district staff’s recommendations included better financial projections, a Common Core transition plan, examining the school’s admission process, and balancing its ethnic demographics. Per these discussions, both sides agreed to postpone the vote until the next board meeting on 12/10.
