Human Services Projects, Inc. Options in Education: Marti Harris Frederick, Stockton: Missing Public Funds: $600,000 yearly

 

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.

Link to Oakland's American Indian Charter School that was just audited and the charteristics of the fraud is almost indentical and remarkable.

Indian Charter supe's wife is the financial officer

Option's Ex. Dir's husband is the chief financial officer

Both Indian and Options hire unqualfied teaching staff

Both schools falsified the academic progress student's made

Both schools shifted large sums of cash to their spouses;Indian about a million a year in rent, construction and salary: Options has over $600,000 a year out of a annual 1.3 million dollar budget missing every year. Teacher's are paid $15 an hour all staff are on furloughs, no benefits all hourly waged employees.

Indian & Options had board's that were not paying attention. Options board hired the daughter of a board member who is a convicted criminal for elderly abuse and financial scams as a deputy guardian for the elderly to work at the school.

At least four members of the Stockton Unified School board, Sarah Cazares, Jose Morales, Glorial Allen and David Verela; are so risk adverse they don't want the school investigated & audited.

Burlingame education attorney, Peter Sturgess, is conducting a "non biased" "thorough" investigation paid for by us but Mr. Sturgess won't require any financial audits and SUSD is audit adverse.

Why?
