During COVID-19, Ballington Academy San Bernardino was seeking renewal of their charter school certification. We had the opportunity to partner with them to produce a video that they would use to promote the school. As a result of COVID-19 social distancing guidelines, the recertification process needed to be conducted virtually, so our team had to pivot quickly and produce the video in a very short timeframe. The meticulous work done and time invested resulted in setting an above and beyond standard for what a successful virtual recertification process looks like. The Los Angeles region of the California Charter School Association (CCSA) has been using the video we produced as an example of best practices for charters going through renewals this year.
CCSA has shared it with all charter schools in the entire state that are renewing this year! Many schools are replicating the model for virtual renewal. Our client has stated that they saw this as tremendously flattering, and a validation that they are continuing to do excellent work, using best practices.
