Valley Preparatory Academy Charter
Ms. Lether has more than 16 years of experience in Fresno Area charter schools, making her one of the pioneers of the charter school movement in Fresno and the San Joaquin Valley. Shelly is co-founder of Valley Preparatory Academy and lead developer of its replication school—Aspen Public School. Both schools serve a target population of transitional kindergarten to grade 8 socio-economically disadvantaged and foster/homeless. Shelly and her staff believe all children in our communities—regardless of their backgrounds and circumstances—have a right to a quality education. At the university level, Shelly works as an adjunct instructor through the Educational Leadership Department of Central Michigan University’s Global Campus.
