Vacaville Unified School District trustees, when they meet tonight, will consider a petition by a Rio Linda-based nonprofit operator of charter schools to have its downtown campus, Heritage Peak, fall under district oversight.
By mutual agreement in June, the district’s governing board and Pacific Charter Institute postponed a vote on the matter. At a May board meeting, trustees, concerned about unresolved questions of liability and special education costs, tabled a decision after 90 minutes of document review, advice by attorneys, comments by trustees and remarks by former Superintendent John Niederkorn. Trustees had originally scheduled an up-or-down vote on June 27.
