Executive Director Weekly Update 1/11/2018

Dear OPA Families,

Happy New Year and welcome back to school! Your OPA administrative team spent a good portion of winter break packing and moving the organization’s administrative office from Corona to Orange County to be in close proximity to OPA-Saddleback Valley and OPA-South Orange County. Our new address is 9870 Research Drive, Irvine, CA 92618. We are close to the Irvine Spectrum.

We are located just 5 minutes from our Saddleback Valley campus and 10 minutes from our SOC campus. We feel like we have come home to our community. We have greatly downsized our administrative staff and quarters. We are meeting our goal to increase organizational efficiency to allocate more resources to classrooms.

This week the OCDE Charter School Division team visited Saddleback OPA-SV to discuss OPA’s integrated and supplementary programming for English Learners and Special Populations. OPA is focusing on strategies and best practices to help all students succeed and be prepared for the rigors of high school and postsecondary pathways.

On Thursday, CUSD Superintendent Vital met with the SOC leadership team and observed classes as part of her annual visit. She expressed support for our school and continued partnership. Future updates will address our timelines and progress for charter renewal.

Thank you for your deep and ongoing commitment to OPA.
