Dear Oxford Prep Families,
With a heavy heart, I am writing to notify you that on Monday, July 24, 2017, Oxford Preparatory Academy received an Order from the Court of Appeal denying our Petition for Writ of Supersedeas and lifting the temporary stay. The result of this Order is the immediate expiration of the Oxford Prep Chino Valley charter and facility agreement.
While we had hoped that the Court would grant a stay for the entirety of our appeal process, yesterday’s notice means that, pending final settlement efforts with CVUSD, our Chino Valley school will not open for the 2017-2018 school year.
When the temporary stay was granted on June 29, 2017, it halted the expiration of our charter and facility retraction. While in place, this stay protected the continuity of our funding, access to our school facility, and allowed us to proceed with plans to open for the 2017-2018 school year.
Oxford Prep Chino Valley is required by law to initiate closure procedures and return this campus to the Chino Valley Unified School District, effective immediately.
To clarify, this is only a denial of our request for a long term stay pending the appeal, and is not a ruling on or affecting our ultimate appeal. Procedurally, the briefing on our appeal will now proceed pursuant to the standard schedule provided for under the California Rules of Court. Please stay tuned for additional information and details on an upcoming parent meeting.
