Charter modeled after PCS faces legal challenge

Western Sierra Collegiate Academy, a college prep charter in Rocklin, CA, modeled after PCS is facing a challenge to the approval of their charter application.  The WSCA charter was denied by the Rocklin school district, their appeal was denied by the Placer County Board of Education and a final appeal failed at a meeting in March of the State Board of Education.  After that appeal failed, the SBE recessed.  Upon reopening the meeting, the WSCA charter was placed back on the agenda for the following day (without due public notice); a re-vote was taken and the appeal was granted.

Rocklin school district officials filed suit in Sacramento County against the State Board of Education in April; WSCA opens this week.
