Conejo Unified Will Give BRIDGES Charter Spot at Horizon Hills campus
The Conejo Unified School District board voted unanimously to provide the Horizon Hills campus for a new charter school still waiting approval from county Board of Education officials.
The board voted Tuesday night to provide a portion of the Horizon Hills campus in Thousand Oaks to the Bridges Charter School, which plans to open in Fall 2010 pending approval from the Ventura County Board of Education.
Some parents at the Open Classroom Leadership Magnet at Conejo Elementary decided to establish Bridges Charter because they wanted autonomy to expand their program. State law requires a school district to provide facilities for a charter school if a certain number of district students plan to attend it.
Although the county Board of Education will not make its decision on whether to approve Bridges until next month, Conejo Valley Unified needed to provide facilities options for the charter by Feb. 1, said Deputy Superintendent Jeffrey Baarstad.
