City Charter and the California State Constitution Article IX, Section 6, Paragraph 3 : "No school or college or any other part of the Public School System shall be, directly or indirectly, transferred from the Public School System or placed under the jurisdiction of any authority other than one included within the Public School System." Also Article IX, Section 8, Paragraph 1: "No public money shall ever be appropriated for the support of any sectarian or denominational school, or any school not under the exclusive control of the officers of the public schools."
