The 19th Annual California Charter Schools Conference and Advocacy Week will be held at the Sacramento Convention Center in Sacramento, CA, February 27–March 1, 2012. The conference brings together the charter school community to achieve excellence in every aspect of running a school. Innovative charter leaders present proven strategies for increasing student achievement and closing the achievement gap. Experts lead sessions about balancing your budget, obtaining a facility, creating a safe school environment, building a productive board and how to advocate for your school. We also have programming about technology, fundraising, developing new schools, independent study and online learning.
