    Assembly Education Committee Approves Santa Clarita Valley Charter School Bill

    Santa Clarita Valley officials addressing what Senate Bill 1263 supporters call a “loophole” in charter school law garnered a victory Wednesday with in the bill’s passage in the Assembly Education Committee. Opponents of the bill called it an unnecessary statewide reaction to “a neighborhood brawl” in the Santa Clarita Valley during a committee hearing in Sacramento this week. The bill authored by Sen. Fran Pavley, D-Agoura Hills, is a response to Santa Clarita Valley superintendents seeking to stop the alleged “shopping” of charter school petitions to the Acton Agua Dulce Unified School District’s governing board.

Li, who’s the school’s executive director and founding principal, is an engineer by trade who earned a master’s degree at the University of Virginia, came to the Santa Clarita Valley more than 20 years ago to work with 3D printing, after teaching at the University of Dayton.
