Charter Increase Expected at Sac City Unified
Sacramento City Unified is considering adding five new charter schools by next year.
The board is expected to vote on the approval of the charters in November.
The district is currently home to ten charter schools, making this a dramatic increase for the area.
As expected, the district’s teacher union is opposed to the expansion of the charter schools, estimating a $10,000 loss in funding from the state per student who leaves traditional public school.
According to the California Charter Schools Association there are 1,254 charter schools in the state enrolling 602,837 students.
We’ll keep you posted on how the board votes in November.
