Vallejo school board rejects charter school petition – Times Herald

By John Glidden

The Vallejo City Unified School District Board of Education rejected a charter petition Wednesday night for the establishment of the Rise Charter School within the district.

According to the petition, presented by Deb Reeves-Gutierrez, Ron Calloway and Ricky Gutierrez, the group sought to establish a charter school in Vallejo based on a connection between fitness/athletics and academics.

“The petition was analyzed by a number of different departments in the district,” said the district’s chief academic officer, Cheri Summers. “We looked at the petition from a number of different angles and this analysis we conducted was not based on our opinion. Whether we liked it or not, it was based on the education code.”
