The charter school commission comes to Yakima Thursday, Oct. 17 and one group is ready to speak up.

If approved, the proposed charter school will be named “Cesar Chavez School” and focus on a duel language curriculum. Co-founder Berta Alicia Garza tells KNDO News that Latino students sometimes face a disadvantage in the classroom if there is a language barrier and this will help bridge that gap.

Garza wants to make it clear that every student would be welcome. Classes will be taught in both English and Spanish.

A meet and greet is scheduled for 6 p.m. at Cafe Vittore in downtown Yakima Wednesday. It is a chance to meet the CEO of the proposed school.

Garza said the CEO will also be speaking during the public hearing in Yakima set for Thursday morning in front of the charter school commissioners.
