Rio Linda Preparatory Academy

Introduction and message:



My name is Cha Lao. I have been working in the afterschool setting for at least 7 years and have been at Rio Linda Preparatory Academy for 4 years. This will be my third year as the Program Manager for the afterschool program. I grew up going to schools in the Twin River’s district and graduated from Grant Union High School. I am glad to return and work with students in the Twin River’s Unified School District. Every day is a new learning and growing experience at RLPA. I hope to continue and provide a quality afterschool program at RLPA. Please let me know if you have any inputs, questions, or concerns about the Expanded Learning program.
