The Westly Foundation announced a $100,000 donation to Green Dot Public Schools on Monday.

The gift is meant to help Green Dot as it assumes control of Locke High School this month. The charter organization plans to convert the campus into eight smaller schools.

The Westly Foundation was founded in 2000 by Steve Westly, who would later serve as state controller, and his wife, Anita.

Green Dot, run by Steve Barr, operates 12 publicly funded charter schools in Los Angeles. Among Green Dot's basic tenets: No school should be larger than 500 students, and more money should be spent at the local schools.
