Hello to our legal fund dono…
Hello to our legal fund donors. We have some news to share:

First, many of you may have seen the latest news about Pat Middendorf's lawsuit. We wanted to let you know that none of the money raised here was used for that lawsuit.

The money raised here was for our CV Teacher-Board representatives, Amber Lineweaver and Dana Tarantino. However, with their resignation from the CV board, they no longer have standing to pursue the lawsuit, so they have told their attorney to stop work and cut our losses.

By way of explanation, in part, for their resignation: the goal of this fund was to get the lawsuit started, and served on the CV Board with the hope that actual legal action would force them to actually begin some sort of mediation and compromise with the problems facing our school. However, over the last few weeks, Amber and Dana realized that whatever we did, even a lawsuit, would not result in any compromise or collaboration. Instead, the school would spend limitless funds to fight the lawsuit at every turn, until we quickly ran out of funds to continue. At this point, Dana and Amber felt their resignations would be a more powerful statement to the County.

That being said, attorneys are expensive, and even the hourly time spent to begin researching the voluminous evidence about the harmful actions taken by the CV board ate up a good portion of our legal fund. But we will be getting the unspent funds back, and we can do pro-rata refunds for those who are interested--contact us or Dana or Amber.

For those who do not want refunds, there have also been ideas floating around about using the leftover money for some other purpose--one example was taking a full page ad in the CCT to list our specific concerns with the CV governance system. We are open to other ideas as well.

Thank you again for your support.

Hello to all the wonderful folks who have donated to our campaign. Thanks to you we have raised over 55% of our goal in less than 3 weeks!

With the money raised so far, we have retained an attorney who is working on the first stages of a lawsuit. But we must continue to spread the message to others in our community who want to return CVCHS to its original vision. As we know, the CV Board is willing to spend nearly unlimited funds on attorneys fees, so we need to continue to raising funds to give ourselves a fighting chance against the billable hour machine.

We have also received some donations as cash or checks, so if someone you know prefers that method of donation, you can message this site and we can arrange that.

Thanks again to everyone for your contributions,

To our thoughtful donors:
Thank you all again for your generous donations, With the money we have raised so far, several teachers and community members have met with an education law attorney, and have begun the preparation stage of filing a lawsuit. We now need you to spread the word for additional donations to help see the lawsuit through to its conclusion--which is the return
which is the return of the Charter to its original collaborative vision!"

Thanks again,
