The Watts Learning Center Charter School was established as an independent charter school in 1997. Sandra Fisher is a founding member of the Watts Learning Center Board of Directors. She has been involved with the Watts Learning Center from the time it opened. She believes that a quality public education for all students strengthens our democracy. Watts Learning Center was named the 2007 Hart Vision Charter School of the Year by CCSA.
Dr. Sandra Fisher received the Legacy Award at the 20th Annual Charter Schools Conference. The Legacy Awards were created to celebrate those outstanding charter school supporters, funders, operators and elected officials who have been stewards of the movement over the last 20 years. Each Legacy Award winner represents the hope and dedication of two generations of California Charter School students.
