We are excited to share that the JCSD9 Board of Directors approved a charter school proposal during last night's board meeting. The proposal was submitted by Dr. James Mannenbach to create the Crater Lake Charter Academy to provide additional appropriate educational opportunities for our families and students. The academy would be a district sponsored charter school and our school board is very excited to be working together with Dr. Mannenbach and the Crater Lake Charter Academy Board of Directors. In the past 6-10 years we have lost more than 400 students to charter schools. This past year we created the D9 Online Program which brought back 71 of our resident students that were attending charter schools. The D9 Online Program has been the "sounding board" to begin the charter school proposal. Crater Lake Charter Academy wants to provide a charter school alternative in JCSD9 that will hopefully bring back all of our resident students! Many people think that a charter school is a way to make money for our district but that is simply not true. This charter school . . .

We will be sharing district, kindergarten and by school attendance percentages monthly to highlight our focus.
