About the Hart Vision Awards

  • Print

Each year as a part of our annual California Charter Schools Conference, we take the time to honor some outstanding achievements from across the movement through the presentation of the Hart Vision Awards.

Originally established by the California Charter Schools Association's predecessor, CANEC, in 1995, the awards are named in honor of Gary K. Hart, retired California State Senator and former California Secretary of Education. While serving as a state senator, Hart sponsored the legislation that established California charter schools.

The awards recognize individuals and schools that have made significant contributions to the Association's mission to increase student achievement by supporting and expanding California's quality charter public school movement.
