The board of the Los Angeles Community College District approved the agreement in a meeting today over the objections of some residents who claimed the deal involving the Glassell Park site had not been reviewed by the public and was unfair to other nearby private and public schools.
The "board authorized a lease for a charter high school, the Alliance for College-Ready Public Schools, to use classroom and other facilities on the site for five years," said an official with the district via e-mail. The district decided to lease the space to a charter school after budget cuts forced it to abandon plans to open a satellite college on the property.
