Clayton Valley Charter overwhelmingly approved by teachers, on to the board

The charter is said to have been approved by 80% of the permanent certificated staff.  Definitely more than the 50%+1 that they needed to send it to the board for approval.

They have released the charter document, which will be presented the Mt. Diablo School board, you can access it here:  CVCHS Submission

The charter facebook page can be accessed HERE.

Last day of school

I've gotten some emails from a few parents (from a couple different schools) asking if it's "normal" for kids to ditch the last day of school.  Some kids at some schools are actually being told by their teachers not to show.  I know in the younger grades they have parties, yearbook distribution and other things they don't want to miss, but the last day of high school w/ finals over, etc?  What do you think?
