Jim D'Agostino, Principal and Director of Santiago Charter Middle School, speaks about all the unique and wonderful after school programs his charter school offers that unfortunately many traditional schools in the district simply can't. He also goes on to speak about the interconnected working relationship he has with parents and the community: "We work in partnership with our community, so we can hear from our parents and our students, and having site-based decisions allows us to give them what they need."
