Monday, November 28th, 2011 at 12:11 pm in Contra Costa County Board of Education, Contra Costa County Office of Education, Education, Mt. Diablo school district.

Expecting a large crowd, the Contra Costa County Board of Education has changed its meeting place to the Pleasant Hill Elementary multiuse room Dec. 7, when it will hear the Clayton Valley High School charter appeal.

The meeting will begin at 5:30 p.m. Wednesday, Dec. 7 at the school, located at 2097 Oak Park Blvd. in Pleasant Hill.

The County Office of Education has not yet posted the agenda: http://www.cccoe.k12.ca.us/supe/board.html.

Normally, the county does not upload the agenda packet to its website. However, the public is entitled to request copies of agenda materials by calling 942-3380 or visiting the County Office of Education at 77 Santa Barbara Road in Pleasant Hill.

The board secretary told me this will be a public hearing, where trustees will listen to public comment. Trustees don’t expect to make a decision on the appeal until Jan. 11, she said. Therefore, she does not expect a staff report to be issued Dec. 7, but she does expect a staff recommendation for the Jan. 11 meeting.

The Mt. Diablo school district’s Parent Advisory Council will meet the same evening from 7-9 p.m. at the district office, 1936 Carlotta Drive in Concord: http://www.mdusd.org/Lists/UpcomingEvents/DispForm.aspx?ID=217&RootFolder=%2FLists%2FUpcomingEvents.

The Mt. Diablo school board denied the charter conversion petition in a 4-1 vote, based on a staff recommendation that determined petitioners did not meet financial requirements: http://esbpublic.mdusd.k12.ca.us/public_itemview.aspx?ItemId=4670&mtgId=311.

Do you think the County Board of Education should approve the charter conversion?
