NAVIGATOR CHARTER SCHOOLS - 08/26/14 10:50 S.S.

A GILROY-BASED CHARTER SCHOOL OPERATOR WANTS TO OPEN 2 SCHOOLS IN SALINAS. THE OWNER OF NAVIGATOR SCHOOLS HOPES TO PLACE ONE SCHOOL EACH IN BOTH THE ALISAL UNION SCHOOL DISTRICT AND THE SALINAS CITY ELEMENTARY SCHOOL DISTRICT. THEY HOPE TO START WITH K-3RD GRADE SCHOOLS, AND EXPAND FROM THERE. CHARTER SCHOOLS ARE PUBLIC SCHOOLS THAT OPERATE OUTSIDE OF THE SCHOOL DISTRICTS, BUT ARE PUBLICLY FUNDED. ALL OF THE CHARTER SCHOOLS IN MONTEREY COUNTY ARE CURRENTLY INDEPENDENTLY RUN, SO THE NAVIGATOR SCHOOLS WOULD BE THE FIRST IN THE COUNTY THAT WOULD BE RUN BY A “CHARTER OPERATOR”. CHARTER SCHOOLS CAN BE CONTROVERSIAL BECAUSE THE TEACHERS AT CHARTER SCHOOLS ARE NOT UNIONIZED, AND BECAUSE WHEN STUDENTS MOVE FROM A DISTRICT SCHOOL TO A CHARTER SCHOOL, THE MONEY THAT PAYS FOR THEM MOVES TOO.
