Greeting ACSA colleagues! We are off to a great start in Stanislaus Charter. Our theme for this year is Uncommon Leadership for a Bold New Future which connects the journey we are on - heading into the implementation of Common Core with the State ACSA Strategic Planning as we move forward as an association. The changes we are faced with there, in addition to the changes with the Local Control Funding Formula, will take “Uncommon Leadership” yet we are up to the challenge.

Many of us began the school year in early August and were already looking toward Back-to-School Nights before we even had our annual kick-off. The ACSA Stanislaus Charter Kick-Off was held on a Monday at the Martin Petersen Event Center in Modesto; it was well attended with over two hundred members of the Charter in attendance along with a strong showing from the Retirees Charter!  We were especially happy to have ACSA members from Modesto City Schools joining us as well.

In other Charter news, we are in the process of planning an event that will be an opportunity for those across the county to gather together to share and network regarding the implementation of Common Core.  More information to come soon!
