Adelante Charter School parents and students showed up in full force to Tuesday’s board meeting to kick off the charter renewal process. Four years ago, the county’s only Spanish-English immersion school ​— ​then known as César Chávez Charter School ​— ​nearly shut down but was able to say open with a new charter, new instructional model, and collaboration with district administrators and boardmember liaison Ed Heron. During Tuesday’s hearing, several supporters spoke of the school’s success. At the next meeting, boardmembers will dissect the 68-page petition for charter renewal, as well as staff’s recommendations, before voting on the charter renewal on April 22.
