OUSD plans to revoke Uprep’s charter

Unless the University Preparatory Charter Academy’s board can prove by Aug. 17 that it will overhaul its governance structure, adhere to the Brown Act and ensure that state tests will be properly — and legally — administered, it will close on Aug. 24.

The Oakland school district released a report today outlining evidence of “adult testing irregularities” (also known as cheating) and an essentially non-functioning governing board. The report says the school has violated state law, as well as its charter.
