Based on a report I just read, I’d be mighty surprised if the Oakland school board renewed the charter of Oakland Aviation High School. The district’s charter school office came up with 32 reasons for (what amounts to) shutting it down, a decision the board makes on Wednesday.
The high school is not posting stellar test scores, that’s for sure. But take a look at reason #10:
The school API score (557) is equal to the median performance of Oakland district schools in 2009 serving similar grades.
Of course, if the Oakland school board rejects the renewal, Oakland Aviation can appeal to the Alameda County Board of Education. It worked for Cox Academy last year.
