Leaders of some local charter school organizations made more money than superintendents of California’s largest school districts in 2016, the most recent year for which all of their salary information is available.

One of those charter organizations was Inspire Charter Schools, which paid its CEO Nick Nichols $514,197 that year, according to an IRS filing.

Inspire is a home school charter network that enrolled at least 23,300 students in nine schools this past fall. Inspire students typically learn from home or online.

Another top payer was Learn4Life, a charter school network with about 44,000 students that says it serves some of California’s most disadvantaged youth, including low income students, refugee students and high school dropouts. Learn4Life was recently ordered to shut down some of its locations because it violated a state law based on where it located its learning centers.
