However, just one week later, on a motion presented by Monica Garcia and seconded by Ref Rodriguez, the LAUSD Board ignored the existence of the uncorrected financial issues outlined in the NTC and unanimously voted to extend the charter by another five years.
While “certain transactions, specifically in the areas of credit card use and check disbursement, which require the attention and timely implementation of CSD requests for board action” might be an issue “that would prevent a renewal”, the October 28, 2015, NTC was not discussed or even mentioned during the LAUSD Board hearing. Their time was spent instead on another NTC that had been issued because ECRCHS had enrolled more students than allowed by their charter. As of the hearing date, they were still not in compliance with this issue Why Was El Camino’s Charter Renewed?:
