Kairos is a Greek word meaning an “opportune moment in time.” It’s also the name of the first independent charter public school in Vacaville, a small city located a half hour southwest of Sacramento, whose mission is to “empower a generation of learners to think critically, analyze and apply knowledge strategically, and utilize relevant tools to interact thoughtfully within a global community.” Founded by a team of experienced charter leaders, Kairos Public School Vacaville Academy (KPSVA) got off the ground thanks to a small group of volunteers, who helped get the word out about the school, resulting in more than 300 parent signatures supporting the charter petition in only 10 days. After the petition was approved, school supporters held a series of informational meetings and interest in the school grew. The school opened this year with 470 students, plus 300 students on the waitlist. Clearly it was an “opportune moment in time” for this charter school to join the community. Now parents in Vacaville have a new and exciting educational option for their children!
