At a special board meeting next week, the Alameda Unified School District Board of Trustees is expected to approve Nea Charter Schools renewal petition.

Nea Community Learning Center provides K-12 charter school education at two campuses in Alameda’s west-end. This year, Nea graduated its first class; according to the school district staff report, the graduation rate was 100 percent.

The staff report also noted that Nea’s Academic Performance Index (API) has exceeded 800 for each of the past four years, ranging from 821 to 839.

California law sets forth the criteria for approving a charter school renewal petition, which include requirements that the school meets API growth targets, presents a sound educational program, and delivers academic performance equal to or better than the performance of public schools that students would otherwise attend.

The school district, however, is recommending that the charter school examine the effectiveness and rigor of certain components of it’s grades six through twelve program.

The special meeting is Tuesday, December 17th, at 6:00 p.m. in the Alameda High School Cafeteria at the corner of Walnut Street and Central Avenue.
