SACRAMENTO, Calif. – The California Charter School Association recognized the Butte County Office of Education with a special Hart Vision Award for its support of charter schools during the Camp Fire.

CCSA presented the award during its 26th annual conference in Sacramento Tuesday.

CCSA annually gives Hart Vision awards to organizations with outstanding records of leadership in public education.
Established in 1995, the award honors Gary K. Hart, retired California State Senator, author of California's landmark public-charter-school legislation and former California Secretary of Education.

In its press release, CCSAA stated that it's proud to dedicate a special one-time award of "Authorizer of the Year" to the Butte County Office of Education for its support of six charter schools that were displaced for destroyed by the Camp Fire.

BCOE has a long history with charter authorization, beginning with BCOE's Learning Community Charter School over 20 years ago.

Barbara Mandelbaum, Butte County Superintendent of Schools, Mary Sakuma and Michelle Zevely, BCOE Assistant Superintendent of Student Programs and Educational Support, were present to receive the award at the CCSA Conference.
