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.
