Deny Renewal of a Charter

October 15, 2018 - por

The Sierra Sands Board of Education has unanimously denied a renewal petition from Ridgecrest Charter School “based on a number of criteria, including lack of sufficient supporting documents in Ridgecrest Charter’s petition to the school district. (…) Sierra Sands board members remarked that while they didn’t wish RCS to close down—and likely won’t—past petition renewals should have provided the school with lessons on how to properly apply. ‘It’s obvious this isn’t the first time we’ve been down this road,’ said board member Bill Farris. ‘I think much is lost in the process as far as the district’s concern and what our responsibility as a board is.’”
