The first school in the country to successfully use a parent-trigger law to become a charter school is leaving the oversight of the district that it has bitterly fought, according to The San Bernardino Sun.

Desert Trails Elementary School in Adelanto, Calif., became the first school to successfully use California's 2010 law allowing parents in low-performing schools to gather signatures to petition for overhauls. Parents in 2012 forced the Adelanto Elementary district to turn the campus into a charter school.

The school's relationship with the district has remained rocky. In December, the Adelanto board voted against renewing the school's charter, The Sun reported. Now, the San Bernardino County board of education has agreed to take over as the oversight agency.
