District rethinking BayTech charter denial

It sounds like Oakland school district staff might let the BayTech charter school stay open after all.

“We’ve been talking to the school today, and we’re trying to reach an agreement with them,” Alex Katz, a district spokesman, said this afternoon.

Ozkur Yildiz, principal of the charter middle school on Telegraph Avenue, said he didn’t want to discuss further details until after tonight’s board meeting. But, he said, the development was “great news for all of our parents.”
