The following statement is in response to news reports of a federal investigation of Celerity, a national charter network that operates 7 charter schools in California:

"CCSA consistently advocates for charter schools being held to high levels of accountability for academic performance as well as adherence to all applicable law. At this point, we have no details about the investigation and we are pleased that Celerity is cooperating. We do know that Celerity's schools in Los Angeles continue to provide an excellent education for their students, including many from historically underserved student populations. Whatever the outcome, we hope this process takes the schools' strong academic performance into account, as our foremost concern is, above all, that students receive a high quality education."
