About Bertelli Public Affairs

California’s charter school and education equity work is complex and challenging. Whether you are trying to start a new school, renew an existing one or fighting to ensure all students have access to a high quality education, being able to correctly assess and act on your public affairs needs is critical. 

Chris Bertelli is one of California’s leading education public affairs consultants, specializing in working with charter schools and other non-traditional schools and programs. He has created public affairs strategies for small, independent schools in rural communities and larger school systems in urban settings. He’s previously written Olympic (literally) sized crisis communications plans and managed international, months-long, non-stop media attention for a high-profile company. Bertelli Public Affairs knows how to lead organizations to prioritize and execute on their communications needs in a rapidly changing communications landscape.
