County Board of Ed to Vote on Charter Appeal Wednesday

Approval with conditions is recommended in Contra Costa County Office of Education staff report.

The county's board of education will meet in Pleasant Hill Wednesday to vote on the appeal of the Clayton Valley Charter High School petition.

Contra Costa County Office of Education staff have recommended that the board approve the charter with the adoption of 12 conditions to be met by March, according to a report published last week. 

The petition "... presents a sound educational program, the budget is balanced, the financial operation is realistic," CCCOE staff say in the report.

The conditions to be met range from providing detailed plans on how CVCHS will meet educational duties; manage staff, legal and financial matters, among other issues. See report for full list.

Among the conditions, is the requirement for CVCHS petitioners to provide written proof of a proposed $2 million line of credit and an advance of property taxes from the County Treasurer to address cash flow issues and concerns originally raised by the Mount Diablo Unified School District.  

The appeal was filed into the Contra Costa County Board of Education after the MDUSD board voted to deny the petition on Nov. 8, claiming conditions were "either not met or partially met," according to the report.

Charter advocates have sent out emails asking for supporters to show up at Pleasant Hill Elementary School at 5:30 p.m. wearing their blue CVCHS shirts Wednesday.

The vote will take place at the Pleasant Hill Elementary School multi-purpose room, at 2097 Oak Park Blvd., in Pleasant Hill.
