OpenSchoolsCA is powered by parent volunteers who have given their time, resources, and professional skills to fuel our growth over the past few months. Behind this parent army, we are led by an Executive Director, Parent Advocates, and Advisors who are committed to our mission of reimagining education for 6 million California public school students.
