Good Evening, Innovations Families,
Innovations Academy Charter Renewal
It was beautiful to have the community come out last Tuesday. We were well received and I am hopeful for a smooth reauthorization. That said, the public vote for approval will be held on March 6th at 5 pm, 4100 Normal St. San Diego 92103. Please schedule this in now. A community show of support is always important.

If your child expresses interest to be on the team you must contact Jeff@innovationsacademy.org. They are working towards participation in the SD Regional Tournament on April 21st at USD, an ALL DAY EVENT from 8am-6pm.

Rally For Charter Schools
The Calif Charter Schools Association is holding a CA Dem Party Teach-In at the Dem Party Convention at the SD Convention Center on Saturday Feb 24th. The event is from 10 am – 1 pm. They are seeking community members who want to show Dem party officials that charter schools are great. There’ll be a rally, speakers and time to meet Dem delegates to tell your compelling stories. This is a great opportunity for children to learn about the political process. CCSA will pay for the buses, and breakfast and lunch will be provided for the families that attend. If interested, contact Sara Erickson at firstname.lastname@example.org.
