Monterey County Home Charter School Renewed

Board of Education approves charter on a 7-0 vote

SALINAS, CA - The Monterey County Home Charter School renewal petition was approved for five years with a 7-0 vote by the Monterey County Board of Education on April 18. Home schooling at the Monterey County Office of Education has been in operation in the Alternative Education program since 1987.

In 2000, the home schooling program was chartered by MCOE as the Monterey County Home Charter School. The school serves students in grades kindergarten through 12 in a home independent study setting.

In addition to being approved by the Monterey County Board of Education, the school has been accredited by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges. It has also met the State of California Charter Schools Renewal criteria, including attaining its Academic Performance Index (API) growth targets.

Since 2007, MCHCS has experienced dramatic changes in the socio-economic and demographic composition of the students and families it serves and has risen to address the needs of all of its students through a rigorous individualized curriculum.

“Parents and students are to be commended for their support of this unique and valuable educational option. MCHCS administration, staff and teachers are dedicated to providing educational excellence and support for these students and families,” said Nancy Kotowski, Ph.D., Monterey County Superintendent of Schools.

“We thank the board for renewing our charter petition,” said Amy Ish, Principal, Monterey County Home Charter School. “We look forward to many more years operating and will continue to provide a quality education program for our students.”
