Charter School Students to Finish the Year

Joint Press Release by LVJUSD and TVLC

June 5, 2017 - Livermore, CA Students attending the Livermore Valley K-8 Charter School (LVCS) and the Livermore Valley Charter Preparatory High School (LVCP) will be able to extend their school year instead of ending school abruptly today. A collaborative agreement between the Tri-Valley Learning Corporation (TVLC) and its oversight agency, the Livermore Valley Joint Unified School District (LVJUSD), provides for LVJUSD support that will allow LVCS to remain open at least until June 7th and LVCP to remain open at least until June 9th.

LVJUSD Superintendent Kelly Bowers, Ed.D., Asst. Superintendent Chris Van Schaack, and Fiscal Director Teresa Fiscus met this afternoon with TVLC CEO, Dr. Lynn Lysko to jointly determine how LVJUSD could provide immediate intervention and assistance to minimize the impact of TVLC’s fiscal standing on LVCS and LVCP students. LVJUSD’s support allows a less abrupt closure to the school year, with the least possible disruption, ensuring course completion, administrative and custodial support, and instructional minutes compliance. There will be necessary time for teachers of record to assign grades, for office staff and the registrar to close up with proper recordkeeping, and for students and their families to participate in planned promotion and graduation ceremonies.

LVJUSD feels strongly that students and families need to finish the year with adequate notice, and that students need to complete their academic year to the greatest extent possible. “The last day of school is an important milestone for students of all ages. In addition to completing academic work so that students are prepared for the next grade level, students want to be able to say goodbye to teachers and classmates. At the high school level, students need to be able to present their final projects, and teachers need time to enter grades so that students have complete transcripts,” said Bowers.

For over a year, the current TVLC management team has been working to improve and strengthen the organization's fiscal systems. Today's agreement helps TVLC finish out the school year and continue its focus on long-term recovery. “We appreciate the District joining with us to put our children first under these extraordinary circumstances," said Lysko. "This act is an important reminder of the shared responsibility our entire community has to the education and well-being of each student.”
