Members of the Pomona Unified School District Board of Education voted Tuesday evening to deny a proposal presented by Chino-based Oxford Preparatory Academy to open a K-12 charter school in the district.

School board members voted 4-1 to deny Oxford Preparatory Academy's petition. Board member Andrew Wong cast the opposing vote.

The decision followed a lengthy presentation by a consultant who reviewed the petition and various district administrators.

The consultant and district administrators said the proposal failed to meet 11 of 20 requirements spelled out in the California Education Code related to charter school programs.
