After six years of trying to open a charter school in Galt, high school trustees denied the application Tuesday following widespread staff criticism of the school's application.

It's unclear where Nueva Vision Charter Academy planners will go from here. One of the founders, Rosendo Garcia, left the meeting before the unanimous board vote was taken, and a representative could not be reached Wednesday.

    hopefully this is the last we hear from those clowns trying to run NVA. it's just embarrasing seeing this group of people trying to open their school and not have all their 'patos' in a row. time for them to get out and leave Galt. this plan was a disaster from the beginning. adios NVA.

    Galt school district can't afford to lose 100+ students from their payroll. The Anglos rule once again. Looks to me like they got the Galt Christmas goose early this year.

    Being told No (six times) means the same thing in Spanish as it does English...there was no language barrier here. Even the three stooges (whom all said they would vote to open it during their campaign)finally listened to Kat Amos and Dennis Richardson. An "all Mexican school" the petitioner's words, not mine, flunked descrimination 101.
