“At OPA, we are obsessed with being better because we are obsessed with excellence.”
– Joseph Haney, Chairman, OPA Board of Directors

Dear OPA Families and Staff,

I am very pleased and proud to announce that last evening, the Capistrano Unified School District (CUSD) Board of Trustees adopted Resolution No. 1819-45, to Approve the Charter Renewal Petition of Oxford Preparatory Academy Public Charter School Subject to Entry into Memorandum of Understanding.

OPA administration will be working closely with CUSD to submit all MOU items by June 28, 2019. This year CUSD similarly approved charter renewal for two schools that entered into a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with the District. As we have in the past, administration will keep you updated about MOU completion.

I would like to thank everyone at SOC and Saddleback Valley who supported our charter renewal process and helped lay the foundation for the future. I think our SOC ASB President, Aidan Agarwal, said it best. “I am happy other students at OPA will get the chance to have the experience I did.”

We are getting started on the charter renewal for OPA-Saddleback Valley. It is best to start preparing early for this process. We have a great working relationship with the staff at Orange County Office of Education and will keep you informed about milestones throughout the timeline process.

The next two weeks are filled with school events and celebrations. Come out and join the fun at SOC and Saddleback Valley.

The next OPA Meeting of the Board of Directors is tonight, May 23rd at SOC. Open Session begins at 7:00 pm. I encourage you to attend or view remotely from home.

Friday, May 24th is a non-instructional day and Monday, May 27th is Memorial Day. School will not be in session both of these days. I hope you have a long lovely weekend.

Sincerely,
Jill
