Barack Obama Charter School Material Revision Request
May 1, 2014
Ms. Julie Russell
Charter Schools Division
California Department of Education
1420 N Street, Suite 5401
Sacramento, CA 95814
Dear Ms. Russell:
Barack Obama Charter School (BOCS) would like to reduce its grade levels served next year from kindergarten through sixth grades to kindergarten through fifth grades. This would encourage our graduating fifth graders to enter middle schools in their sixth grade and reduce later assimilation challenges.
CDE staff has informed us that reducing the school by one grade level will require a ma-terial revision to the original charter. The purpose of the attached Material Revision to the BOCS charter petition is to secure SBE approval of our elimination of sixth grade at BOCS.
We are looking forward to the CDE Charter Schools Division’s review of our Material Revision.
