LA charter school faces possible closure over ‘fiscal mismanagement’

Alleging fiscal mismanagement and “fatal flaws in judgment,” Los Angeles Unified staff will ask the district’s Board of Education on Tuesday to issue a “notice of violations” to El Camino Real Charter High School — the first step to revoking its charter, according to the district. The west San Fernando Valley school, which converted to an independent charter in 2011, would have until Sept. 23 to remedy all the alleged violations if the notice is issued.

The public hearing is Tuesday at 1 p.m. By Brenda Gazzar, Los Angeles Daily News
