Daily Breeze website from staff reports
11/24/2009 07:09:10 AM PST | A fourth group has applied to run Gardena and San Pedro high schools under a Los Angeles Unified School District reform initiative.
The Daily Breeze previously reported that three groups - the internal school community, United Teachers Los Angeles and Illinois-based education consultancy Synesi foundation - had applied to run both schools.
The fourth group, which was not included last week on an initial LAUSD list of applicants to the Public School Choice program, is Phoenix-based American Charter Schools Foundation.
Like UTLA and Synesi, American Charter Schools Foundation applied to run all 30 campuses available under the initiative.
A school district spokeswoman said the foundation was not originally reported as an applicant because it had submitted letters of intent to an incorrect e-mail address.
