Options in Education, Inc., is a taxpayer funded non public school for some of California’s most challenged students in San Joaquin county. This small school with fifty five students has gross annual revenues of 1.3 million dollars. Foster youth and others, many times require these specialized schools to assist them in their education goals to overcome learning disabilities, behavior and self esteem issues and social promotion.

 Teacher's are paid $15 an hour other staff make from $10-$11 and all have furlough days. No staff at the school can explain where all the funding goes; anyone that asks is fired. The school  lacks education resources to include areas in the arts, computer science, math, science, language, sports, drama, field trips, job skill and competency development; most students don't have books.

The school employed a convicted criminal that acted as the surrogate parent who steered students into this school.

Stockton Unified School District, has a major oversight role and must conduct a complete review for the past three years, 2008-2010; to access the school's finances and cirriculum

 By signing this petition, we are all asking the local school districts, state school officials, and most importantly, the non profit responsible to these youth, Human Services Projects, Inc. Board President David F. Scatena, to improve the education provided, assure the staff have the proper credentials, the school has an array of rich resources , account for the missing public funds and that it is operated transparently.

      Petition Organizer

      Stockton Unified School District, compliance officer, an attorney, was more invested this week in an investigatory interview in discouraging any review of this million dollar school. Why? It appeared the liability for SUSD who has an oversight role is the reason. SUSD needs to protect the students over the adults. Tell the Stockton Unified School District Board of Education, that it's not OK to use public funds to obstruct state education codes uniform complaint procedure.

      We hear it all the time, our college's and trade school's are over flowing with people increasing their job skills to be competitive in the workplace. High school is a critical juncture for many students and particularly state foster youth, with social promotion and a public school system which has abandoned them; 50% will be homeless after turning 18, over 40% will have law enforcement problems, with 2% attending college. These are bright and capable people that need the opportunity, resources and motivation to be successful. Scoundrels like the Frederick' with a vacation home in Arnold and a luxury home in Stockton, shouldn't be allowed to profit on the backs of poor kids with our money. Group home staff unearthed Oct 2010, that the Frederick' failed to pay double time in six 24/7 facilities for 20-years, the excuses ranged from a software payroll glitch to not knowing Calif state wage laws.

      Several of the SUSD trustees are the lap dog of the principal. It will take a force to compel

      them to include the new president into being responsible to the kids.
