Thank you all for participating in the Florida Charter Schools Alliance meeting. It was a great opportunity for parents and teachers to learn more about issues facing charter schools at the state and local level.
Former state representative Ralph Arza presented Plato Academy parents, teachers and board members with awards recognizing their passion and dedication to improving education for Florida students. Mr. Arza also recognized Steve Christopoulos with an award for years of dedication and service making Plato Academy schools “among the very best schools in Florida.”
Mr. Christopoulos thanked all of his staff and parents for choosing Plato Academy and setting high expectations for their children and their volunteer work.
