The Tracy Learning Center, which was founded in 2001 by Dr. Keith Larick and Virgina Stewart, is a state funded nonprofit organization consisting of three charter schools: Primary Charter (grades kindergarten through four), Discovery Charter (grades five through eight) and Millennium High School.
Discovery School, which opened its doors in 2001, is required by the State to renew its Charter status every five years.
According to Jessica Cardoza, spokeswoman for the Tracy Unified School District, the charter needed to be renewed by the end of the 2010-11 school year.
“We held a public hearing on Dec. 14, 2010, to see if there were any objections to the renewal, and there weren’t,” she said.” The board has to renew a decision within 60 days, and that was decided last night.”
Discovery School’s renewed charter is good from July 1, 2011, through June 30, 2016.
