Epiphany Prep Charter School submitted a petition for a five-year renewal on November 2, 2020. The petition can be found here.

Within 60 days of receiving the renewal petition, the Escondido Union School District Board of Education must hold a public hearing to review documentation submitted by the charter school and to obtain public input. On December 10, 2020, the EUSD Board of Education conducted a public hearing to obtain public input on the petition for renewal.

The board will either grant or deny the charter renewal within 90 days of receiving the petition, or within 120 days with the consent of both the petitioner and the board.

On January 28, 2021, both parties agreed to extend the timeline to grant or deny the charter petition for renewal by 11 days up to and including February 11, 2021. Furthermore, Epiphany agreed to waive the 15-day requirement to publish all staff recommendations and findings regarding the petition.

The board will make a determination to grant or deny the charter petition at a special board meeting scheduled for 7 p.m. Thursday, February 11, 2021. The board agenda will be available for the public on Monday, February 8, 2021.

The staff recommendation and recommended findings can be found here.
