Oxford Preparatory Academy – Chino Valley, (Oxford Prep) is an independent, public and site based charter school that was initially unanimously approved in January 2010 by the Chino Valley Unified School District (CVUSD) to operate in Chino for a two-year term from July 1, 2010 to June 30, 2012. The Charter School petition was renewed in December 2011, again with a 5-0 unanimous vote by the CVUSD School Board, for a five-year term from July 1, 2012 to June 30, 2017.
The enrollment at Oxford Prep Chino Valley has grown to over 1200 students. The Chino Valley charter school is one of three Oxford Prep charter schools with a combined enrollment of over 2600 students. Oxford Prep submitted its Charter Renewal Petition on January 25, 2016.
On March 17, 2016, the Chino Valley Unified School District passed a resolution denying the Charter Renewal Petition. According to the resolution, the primary basis for the CVUSD’s denial were the following: Petitioners were demonstrably unlikely to successfully implement the program set forth in the petition, the petition failed to describe reasonably comprehensive description of 8 of 15 required elements, and the petition failed to provide legally required affirmations and assurances in compliance with state law.
