San Lorenzo Valley Charter schools provide invaluable educational opportunities to students, families and the community. As a 4th generation Santa Cruz County resident, pioneer homeschool mom of the 1980’s, 15-year veteran teacher of the traditional classroom, host teacher to 30+ UCSC Cal Teach students considering a teaching career and current new teacher induction mentor, I want to strongly endorse the work of the programs in the SLV Charter School. Not all students thrive in a traditional school and need other options. SLV Charter provides the means for ALL children and young adults to reach their full potential and become vibrant productive members of society. My nephew and niece are prime examples of the successes that grow from the unique opportunities provided at SLV Charter. Keep up the great work!
