16 May 2019

Dear CMP Community,

I am very excited to share the Buckeye Union School District Board (BUSD) unanimously approved the Charter Renewal for CMP-Shingle Springs at Wednesday night’s Board meeting.  The new authorization is effective July 1, 2019 and extends through June 30, 2024.  

The BUSD Board spoke glowingly of our program and operations, as well as the spirit of collaboration that is the foundation of the relationship between BUSD and CMP.

Brett comes from a family of educators, his wife is a teacher, and he is a former elementary school teacher. This past year Brett served as Superintendent of Wonderful College Prep Academy in the Central Valley.

Good Day, CMP Friends,

Earlier this week I had the great pleasure of starting this year’s round of gathering ‘LCAP Stakeholder Input.’  In coming weeks, I will be visiting all of our CMP campuses, and meeting with students, staff and parents to explore ideas that support quality education for all CMP students.

In the course of these presentations, we will be re-visiting CMP’s Mission and Vision, which capture the essence of our program.  Please, prepare for our meetings by reviewing our statements, as follow.  I look forward to meeting with you!
