Adelanto Will Not Renew Charter For Desert Trails Parent Trigger School

ADELANTO >> Three years after a San Bernardino judge ordered the go-ahead of an Adelanto elementary school being converted to a charter, over the school district’s objections, the Adelanto Elementary School District school board has “non-renewed” the school’s charter.

The board made the decision at a meeting Monday night, in a room packed with students and supporters of Desert Trails Preparatory Academy, which occupies the campus of the former Desert Trails Elementary School.

“You’ve got close to 500 scholars that are Adelanto kids and they are learning,” school director Debra Tarver, who runs the LaVerne Preparatory Academy charter school in nearby Hesperia, told the board prior to the vote. “Where are we going to put them? Out on the streets?”
