On August 23, the Walton Family Foundation announced a three-year, $15 million grant to CCSA to expand parental choice in California's charter public schools, with a specific goal of allowing 100,000 more students to attend quality charter schools over the next three years.

The grant is the largest single investment made by the foundation to a state charter school association and is based on CCSA's proven track record of expanding parental choice in California as well as the Association's success in pursuing state and local policies that seek to increase charter public school funding to levels comparable to traditional public schools.
