Charter schools are funded by the State of California. But, like our state public education at all levels--preschools, elementary schools, middle schools, high schools, and higher education--funding from the state is declining and subject to delays and shortfalls. Each of the charter schools operated by CLCS has established a 501 (c) (3) organization eligible to receive tax-deductible contributions towards the academic and co-curricular programs offered by the schools. Please visit the online giving pages of ACLC (Alameda Community Learning Center) or Nea Community Learning Center to support those schools.
Community Learning Center Schools, Inc. is the nonprofit corporation that manages the 6-12 Alameda Community Learning Center (ACLC) and the K-12 Nea Community Learning Center (Nea), both charter schools in Alameda, California. The CLCS schools are based on an educational model of learner empowerment. CLCS is actively engaged in disseminating this model by school creation and redesign.
CLCS’s mission is to provide corporate leadership, conceptual oversight, and business and legal services to the CLCS charter school Governing Boards. CLCS charter schools serve as educational models that empower all youth to take ownership of their educational experience, to celebrate their diverse community, and to actively participate as members in a democratic society.
