PLEASANT HILL -- The Contra Costa County Board of Education will hold a public hearing Wednesday regarding the proposed Dozier-Libbey Medical High School charter in Antioch.
Trustees will hold the hearing at 6 p.m. in the Pleasant Hill Middle School multipurpose room at One Santa Barbara Road in Pleasant Hill. Trustees expect to vote on the proposal May 21.
Teachers at the medical-themed high school are appealing the Antioch school district's rejection of their petition to convert Dozier-Libbey into a charter school free of district control. Meanwhile, the school district is trying to turn the school into a district-run charter, but a Contra Costa County judge halted that effort last week pending resolution of the teachers' appeal.
Following the hearing, trustees will recess and reconvene the rest of the meeting at approximately 7:30 p.m. at the Contra Costa County Office of Education, 77 Santa Barbara Road in Pleasant Hill. They expect to vote on a Memorandum of Understanding with Caliber K-8 charter school and to approve a Common Core expenditure plan.
