Stockton, CA — Stockton Unified School District sent a letter to Tri-Valley Learning Corporation (TVLC) today informing TVLC of the district’s decision to consider the petitions to authorize the two Acacia schools previously authorized by New Jerusalem Elementary School District. The petitions were submitted to SUSD on July 21 and SUSD will include a hearing on those petitions during its August 23 board meeting.

 

The following is a statement by TVLC Interim CEO Lynn Lysko regarding SUSD’s decision.

 

“We are very pleased SUSD has agreed to consider authorizing Stockton’s Acacia schools. Our staff and parents are eager for the opportunity to share our schools’ success and plans for the future with the SUSD board and staff. We appreciate SUSD recognizing this unique situation and acting now. Our parents and students deserve an authorizing partner who values their schools’ contribution to the Stockton community and we look forward to engaging in this productive process with SUSD.”

 

TVLC will continue to appeal the New Jerusalem revocation to the San Joaquin County Office of Education.
