    Interesting development.
    Question...
    Since the school district runs the Giving Opportunities to Kids Foundation, a nonprofit organization run by the district, and since the district gets its funding from tax payers, is their any potential conflict of interest problems?

    For example, what if Lodi home schooled children, who are saving tax payers money by not utilizing the school district's facilities and teachers, requests money for books and supplies but are denied this funding. A parent might be motivated to sue as the school district can influence who qualifies for the money.

    It seems like this idea is a good one, but it gives an appearance of a conflict of interest because the district is heavily involved.

    Will Charter schools and other organizations in the district be eligible for money... or just the traditional public schools. Last question is will people who donate be able to specify exactly how they want their funds allocated?
