A Message From John Sun, President & CEO
Dear Friends and Colleagues,
I would like to congratulate all our charter school partners on the successful start of another school year and their tireless work to continue to transform the lives of students in need.
Through these strong partnerships, this year we delivered nine additional facilities from Santa Ana, California to Washington State.
Our excitement, however, is tempered by the stunning news that the Washington State Supreme Court ruled to invalidate the state's charter school law. The ruling impacts the lives of more than 1,200 students currently enrolled in the State's charter schools. PCSD and its Washington State affiliate, Washington Charter School Development (WCSD), stand firmly behind the eight schools that opened this fall as well as our Washington partners.
Overall, 2015 marks PCSD's 11th year supporting high quality schools in underserved communities, and we hit the major milestone of delivering our 50th school facility. We look forward to our continued partnership with all of you. We'd like to use this newsletter to share some of these successes as well as provide updates on our organization.
