CARSNet: Shift in Name, Not Focus

Our CARSNet acronym, “Charter Authorizers Regional Support Network” is now “Charter Accountability Resource & Support Network”. This new name values our continued purpose of providing resources and support to California school district and county office charter school authorizers for the common good of holding charter schools accountable.

In this Lozano Smith podcast, moderator Sloan Simmons engages with Dr. Daryl Camp, Superintendent of the Riverbank Unified School District, and Lozano Smith Partner Megan Macy, regarding a burgeoning and healthy competition between two separate dual immersion programs operated in Riverbank, one through a dependent charter school and another through in a traditional district school. Their discussion explores how this existing dynamic in Riverbank serves one of the original purposes of the Charter Schools Act, the benefits of this unique situation, and some of the challenges which arose along the way.
