Ventura Charter School of Arts & Global Education began in 2006 when the Ventura County Board of Education approved its original petition. In 2011, the School submitted a petition for renewal and was granted another five year term. Ventura Charter School submitted a second petition for renewal in November, 2015. The Ventura County Board of Education will conduct a hearing on January 25, 2016 to review the petition and to consider another 5 year term.
