Does anyone know of a website where you can report charter school principals that are abusing their power or misusing funds?
I don't know about a website, but I have two solid suggestions. The Principal(s) are hired by a board of directors and I'd call the chairman of that board immediately and ask for a copy of their complaint procedures and process. Talk to the person too and see what could be done informally. But make your issues known. If you have serious evidence of misuse of public money, also go to the District Attorney or local police department. Finally, the Grand Jury could also be a route. We finally had to do that in the Jeff Sloan mess. Good luck and stay with it!

clearly you do not know these people. i have known thes people since about 2004 and they are great people. jill khan would never do this fraud that is being alked about. they did not even look into this and they stole our student information. we had social security numbers and all of that and the biggs school district literally stole that the day the school was shut down. the only reason this happened is because we were more popular than the other local schools and we were higher on the star testing scores. i wish more of you would realize that some people are selfish and jealous. thatis why jill and cook where blamed when all they were spending the money on was a new facility for the school. she actually had only a few days left before she signed the papers.

Raina, I think you are a tad bit misinformed. Jill and Cook are not honest people who have used others to get the charter school going and pilfer money from it. You should read the Extraordinary Audit of Oak Hills Academy and then post a comment. Jealous of Jill and Josh? Please, both are not people worthy of that emotion. Look at all the financial and personal trouble Jill is having right now. Hopefully you will see another point of view after reading the audit and won't be so quick to defend people who have committed indefensible actions.

How as a student do you know how many days Jill had left to sign papers? Why would you, as a student, be privy to that information? Did Jill tell you to write in defense of her or is this actually Jill writing to try and defend herself?

The problems with the charter school started when the contractor Greg Hunter(licensed contractor) took $50000.00 from the school to build a new facility. He did not fulfill his contract nor return the money he took from the job. Called him direct if you want the full story. His lack of professionalism and misuse of school funds wasdevastating and the school never recovered.
He and his wife Lisa used the money to build onto their shantytown they call a home. Lisa continues with her petty ways and does a disservice in the community the way she works with kids. She fails to realize the world does not revolve around her and her family. She is a complete lunatic and has no social skills.

Jill is not known for her honesty and everyone in Gridley knew she was pilfering money from the charter school. She falsified school numbers for her own benefit, hired friends/family, and bought Christmas presents for her daughter using school funds. She bought a house in her parents name and defaulted on the loan leaving her parents to deal with the aftermath. She takes money from her daughters to fund her lifestyle. Why is she even still in Gridley??? Talk about trash! The only one who supports Jill is herself, she is that narcissistic! It's almost comical to watch her talk about "what a nice, hardworking person she is" when everyone knows she's only out for herself! She gossips about everyone, including her friends, and we all know it! The only thing she is good for is some entertainment. As much as I hate to say it, I laugh behind her back whenever she talks about the latest drama that's occurring in her life. Have fun in court Jill! What goes around comes around!!

Oh dear, Jill is such an awful person. Everything that comes out of her mouth is a lie or exaggeration!
It's sad that she lives that way and she doesn't even realize or have any remorse for her lies. This town does not need someone of that caliber. It's no wonder she's been divorced a few times! I can't believe Norm would marry her a second time, get out while you can Norm!!! Find someone who isn't obsessed/jealous of hers and your ex spouses!

How about your State Investigating Team start sniffing out all of the waste in the State's education system. That would save enough to balance the budget and more. Then the more needs to go back to the taxpayers, the way Sarah Palin gave the monies back to her constituency.
You are talking common sense now and these moron liberals don't understand that

They are too stupid to see that this is a war on the poor and middle class to sentence their children to a lifetime of slave jobs and that means their entire future generations will never be educated either

Meanwhile the rich will be educating their children in private schools to become the slave drivers of the publicly educated
