Receiver Appointed For California Sonoma Steam II Charter School

Published: June 13, 2019

The San Diego County Grand jury handed down a criminal indictment which uncovered a statewide financial fraud related to the operation, control and oversight of 19 charter schools including the California Sonoma STEAM II charter school in the Guerneville Elementary School District. 

The San Diego Superior Court has appointed a temporary receiver to take over operations of the schools and their assets.  A hearing is scheduled for July 9, 2019 in San Diego Superior Court for his permanent appointment.

The District Attorney of San Diego stated in a Press Release that “These defendants engaged in a devious, systematic public corruption scheme on the backs of students and their parents and the public that over time diverted millions of taxpayer dollars into their own pockets.”  To view the complete Press Release see:
