Charter school at the Richey school site

After the closure of Richey School in the Old Pascua neighborhood (which passed the Board on 3-2 vote despite Mark’s strong opposition), Mark began working to get a new school into the site. The board recently unanimously approved the charter for a new TUSD-operated school to open at Richey. Half of the site is leased to the Pascua Yaqui tribe, with the other half reserved for the new charter school, which is scheduled to open in Fall, 2013. Initially, the school will probably offer only the earliest grades.
