National Charter School Week is about celebrating and educating the public about alternative education.
One of the most important aspects of a child's life that a parent can navigate is their child's education. Although there are options such as private or religious education as an alternative for parents who can afford them, some parents want their children to stay in the public school system, but would like more options to chose from. That is why some parents are turning to charter schools.
Harvest Ridge Placer Academy in Rocklin is a charter school started by a group of dedicated parents who wanted a specialized education for their children. Christi Johnson and Janet Sutton with Harvest Ridge, discuss the journey of creating a charter school and what their school offers to parents and their children.
