Golden Valley Charter Schools is pleased to announce the hiring of a new Executive Director, Caleb J. Buckley, EdD. Dr. Buckley will oversee the Charter Management Organization, central office operations, maintain strong rapport with the school district and guide the schools through growth and expansion. He brings a wealth of wisdom and experience.

Dr. Buckley has a long history in Waldorf education and the charter movement. He grew up in the Bay Area and attended the Marin Waldorf School as a child in the late 70’s. After receiving his Master’s in Political Science and working in business and politics, Caleb completed a Waldorf high school teaching certificate in New Hampshire.

In 2015, Golden Valley Charter School became a Charter Management Organization (CMO), overseeing two schools. Our new name? Golden Valley Charter Schools for Educational Renewal. We are a nonprofit entity that currently manages two charter schools, Golden Valley River School and Golden Valley Orchard School.

On the evening of April 26th during the San Juan Unified School District Board meeting, fifth graders Esther Sullivan and Wyatt Kerr stood up to communicate the importance of our May Day Festival and to personally invite members of the board. Third graders Seneca Ikemire and Grace Kerr and first grader Kusha Hosseinion stood up as well.

Each of these students presented handmade invitations for each board member.  Golden Valley Orchard School teachers Ms. Sullivan, Ms. Cortez, and Ms. Hidden coordinated the making of the student invitations.
