August 5, 2020
Dear Sage Oak families,
We know and appreciate that many of you are following the SB-98 legislation which has a direct impact on Sage Oak. At this time, the Legislature has returned from an extended recess and is meeting to discuss the portion of this bill that affects growing public schools in California. The Sage Oak community has come together to sign petitions, reach out to legislation, and spread awareness about this bill and we are seeing evidence that those efforts are making a difference.
Yesterday, Sage Oak Charter Schools was featured in an op-ed piece that circulated to several newspapers in Southern California. Additionally, over the past few months Sage Oak has been featured in numerous articles and interviews to help shed light on the impact this bill has on public schools like Sage Oak.

We will continue to communicate with you as we learn more in the coming weeks. We are hopeful that State legislators will find solutions to provide funding to growing public schools before the start of the school year. Thank you for your patience as we wait for information. If you have not yet made your voice heard, please consider doing so by contacting your local legislator by email or phone at this link and/or signing the petition.
