Alisal administrators say no to Navigator Charter

As you probably remember, Gilroy-based charter schools operator Navigator wants to open two schools in Salinas, one in the Alisal and another in the Salinas City school districts. You can read more about it here.

As could have easily been predicted, the unions that represent school employees showed up in force to express their concern with Navigator. Here's the story I wrote about it here.

So it wasn't very surprising to see that Alisal administrators are actually going to recommend trustees deny the school.  They're expected to vote on this on Wednesday at their regular school board meeting.

Navigator's scheduled to have its hearing at the Salinas City Elementary School District on Monday.

It won't surprise me if Navigator decides to appeal the decision to the Monterey County Board of Education.

What comes after that is anybody's guess, although I may want to venture an educated guess. Hit me up if you want to hear what it is.
