An Orange County, Calif., school board has agreed to try to negotiate student-safety concerns with a charter school rather than revoke its charter. The school board for the 32,000-student Orange Unified School District agreed to form a joint committee with Santiago Charter Middle School leaders to discuss ways to ensure the safety of Santiago’s students in the wake of the January arrest of one of its teachers on charges she had sex with two students.
