Statement From Vahan Gureghian, Founder and CEO, CSMI

Chester Community Charter School's Management Company

CHESTER, PA--(Marketwired - August 26, 2015) - We're, of course, pleased with Judge Kenney's decision. The ruling ensures that Chester's children will be able to return to their classrooms, next month, at the same time that the rest of the students across the Commonwealth will.

As far as we were concerned, the hearings and the public debate were never about charter public schools versus traditional public schools. In fact, we know that about 40 percent of Chester Community Charter School's parents also have at least one other child in a traditional public school. This effort was simply about ensuring continued, improving educational and economic access for all of Chester's students and families.

CCCS looks forward to having opportunities to work together with the Wolf Administration, on behalf of those students and families, in the months and years to come.

About Chester Community Charter School

Chester Community Charter School opened its doors on September 9, 1998, serving 97 students from its modest, four, meeting rooms, in the lobby of the Howard Johnson Hotel, in Chester, PA. Since that time, the school has steadily grown to include more than 3,000 students in 11 state-of- the-art-buildings, spanning three campuses. Through collaboration with the Gureghian Charitable Foundation, and CCCS' High School Search and Selection Program, more than $9.5 million in scholarships and financial assistance to prestigious private secondary schools has been awarded to 225 of the school's graduates, since 2009. http://chestercommunitycharter.org
