LAUSD Approves Renewal of CHAMPS Charter petition
Tuesday was a good day for CHAMPS Charter High School of the Arts, a high-performing charter school in Van Nuys. In a 6-1 decision by Los Angeles Unified School District's Board of Education, on November 18, the charter for CHAMPS was renewed for five additional years.

"We are very pleased with LAUSD's decision to renew our charter," said Linda Pierce, Principal of CHAMPS. "It is a testament to the quality education that we provide and our unique focus on an art-infused, college preparatory curriculum."

LAUSD charter schools undergo a stringent evaluation process in order to renew. The Charter School Division of LAUSD undergoes a case study for each charter petition. They evaluate the school’s instruction and curriculum, governance, professional development, parent involvement, and student achievement, which are assessed through site observations, staff and stakeholder interviews, and review of school data and reports.
