July 23, 2009 (El Cajon)-- The Grossmont Union High School District Board voted unanimously (5-0) to halt the charter revocation process for Helix Charter High School.
"We agreed that the actions taken by the Helix board satisfied the cure and correct letters and there was no need for a hearing," GUHSD trustee Richard Hoy told East County Magazine this evening. "Both Helix and our board are confident that the issues have been addressed and while we have learned from the past we are looking forward."
At the last GUHSD board meeting, parents, teachers and students, and alumni (photo) turned out in support of Helix. Helix initially balked at meeting some requirements set by the district, including revising the composition of the school's charter board, but ultimately agreed to meet the district's conditions.
