Four San Diego charter schools have been certified by the California Charter Schools Association for meeting the group’s set of “quality standards”. The new certification program is the first effort by charter schools in the nation to voluntarily evaluate their own programs.
Like regular public schools, charter schools are open to all students and are funded by public dollars, though they are freed from many of the regulations governing traditional schools. In the San Diego Unified School District, one of out of every 10 students attends one.
San Diego’s High Tech High, The Preuss School, KIPP Adelante Preparatory Academy and Greater San Diego Academy were among the first 39 schools to be certified under the program. The certification was carried out by independent third-party evaluators, according to the association.
