MOU Approved in Unanimous Vote – OPA SOC to Remain Open for 2018-2019 School Year!

Dear OPA Families, Staff, and Friends:

I have really good news to share! As we had hoped, the Capistrano Unified School District board voted unanimously (7-0) tonight to approve the Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) written by OPA and CUSD staff to keep OPA-SOC open for THE ENTIRE 2018-19 SCHOOL YEAR while we continue to cure the items identified in the Notice of Violation (NOV). As we have noted, this is an incredibly important agreement that gives our new leadership the opportunity to finish the work begun several months ago to ensure that OPA-SOC excels in its fiscal and managerial duties just as we do academically.

We will continue to keep you updated as we make progress on the NOV items throughout the rest of 2018 and prepare for the renewal process in the spring.

This is exciting for all of us and such a great step forward. We are thankful to Capistrano staff and Board for giving us this opportunity. Again, thank you for all of your support and your diligent advocacy on behalf of OPA-SOC’s students.

Warmly,
Kathi
