This conference was founded and organized by the Charter Schools Development Center, the nation’s longest-running charter school support and advocacy organization.
An Ally and Advocate for 30 Years
CSDC’s Executive Director and Founder, Eric Premack, helped write California's first charter laws in 1992 and founded CSDC shortly thereafter. CSDC has been active ever since, providing tireless support and advocacy to the California charter school sector.
We Support Effective Charter Schools and Leaders
In addition to being a critical voice, ally, and advocate at the Capitol, CSDC has defined high quality charter school leader training for thirty years. CSDC is proud to annually offer a menu of training opportunities including the CSDC conference, Leadership Intensive (LI), Charter Business Officer (CBO) Training Program, Online Governance Academy, and our newly-minted HR Academy.
We Serve the Majority of California Charter Schools, CMOs, and Developers in the State
California's charter schools, charter management organizations, and their leaders from across the state trust CSDC to keep them up-to-date and supported with the ongoing operational support, tools and resources, individualized technical assistance, and high quality training opportunities they need.
