PUBLIC HEARING NOTICE
The San Luis Obispo County SELPA hereby gives notice that a Public Hearing will be held on May 12, 2023.
How It All Began
In early 2010, a small group of parents, educators, and community members came together to create what would become Almond Acres Charter Academy (AACA).
The ongoing budget cuts forced upon our local school districts changed the landscape of education in our small community.
The founding team was united by a vision of creating a school that would be a part of, and continue, the tradition of our local districts, but also have greater flexibility in the delivery of curriculum, fiscal management, and decision making.
