Well, gosh, if I didn’t know better I might think the district was trying to provoke a lawsuit. Must be nice to think you win even if you lose….apparently it’s all a blank check.

It does appear so. Maybe the residents of Ross Valley should let it be known that a possible limit on the spending used to “intimidate” Charter parents and prospects would be a good public discussion to have.

It appears that currently the district has no limit on how much they have allocated for this purpose. Is it a line item in the district’s budget?

How do you see that happening? Recommendations?

This site is meant for dialogue and the exchange of ideas, not invective. And, we are not affiliated with the RVC. But…

Prop 39 is so that Charter’s don’t have to “beg and steal” classrooms. It was created so that approved charter schools had a legal means to obtain space. I stress the word legal, here.

At the end of the day you are at the district’s mercy in many ways. For example, the location of your additional space. It seems strange that you would choose this when you could be your own autonomous school.

RVC would love to be located off a district site. Absolutely. But where? RVC searched and searched for an alternative but couldn’t come up with another affordable option within the district, as required by law.

Red Hill makes the most sense–it’s a mostly unused campus that RVC offered to pay to have refurbished. The district could collect the rent money and all the other campuses would be undisturbed. But StanDistrict isn’t interested in that logical solution. Why? Because they want to keep up the community drama in order to try to kill RVC.

Last year, RVC gained 40 new students during the course of the year. This year they are also likely to gain some new students, although it’s hard to know how many. Think of Manor School: it has around 250 kids with about 20 classrooms, plus office space, special ed space, a multi-purpose room, a library, a full blacktop and field, etc. RVC has about half that number of in-district kids so should have roughly half as many rooms. The district tried to offer only 6 total–for classrooms, art, music, before- and after-school care, special ed, etc. And RVC only gets… Read more »

You said you had 144 kids. In reality you have 121. How can we believe your numbers?

1) As said before, this site is not the Ross Valley Charter nor are we affiliated with the Charter.
2) Comments like yours are not welcome here. We are not interested in Next Door intimidation tactics and inane personal statements. You already have four (4) places for that; Next Door, Marin IJ, your website and the District board docs. We are trying to inoculate our visitors from drive-by tactics like yours.

It’s a simple question and pertinent to the original post.

You need to ask the Ross Valley Charter questions like that.

Once again, your opinions without reference or documentation are meaningless here. Much better to stay on Next Door with this kind of post. We are looking for comments that further discussion, compromise and use documented facts. Spend a little more time trying to formulate helpful comments that try to further community dialogue.

No, it is not helpful, as you well know, to repeat the same STAND mantra over and over again. Take it where it will be appreciated. And what does cooperation look like to you? The charter folks have asked at every juncture of disagreement to mediate, discuss and even to let the MCOE help, and RVSD says no. Everytime.

I guess what we’re all wondering is when is the district going to start cooperating.

Like I said, declarations such as yours have an enthusiastic audience on Next Door.

Trolling is not nice. You noticed that the post wasn’t inflammatory, right. As a matter of fact it was merely a public posting of the district’s “Final Facilities Offer.”

Last post, okay? More of the same will be deleted. Make nice, you’ll feel much better.

Surely you must see I have a point? I hope that we can all see this as settled and begin to heal the rift.

Take away all the false assigned motives and malicious characterizations of people on both sides and there’s not much of a story . A new charter school opened . So what. There’s a law requiring all CA school districts to provide surplus classrooms. So what . This whole conflict is beyond ridiculous with way too much emotional personal baggage with too many people feeding the rumor drama beast. If the Ross Valley District has the empty building why the hell aren’t they opening it. Save the assigning malicious characterization to the charter school response. Bogus whether it’s true or not.… Read more »
