    As a taxpayer in Oakland who supports a quality education for all students, I object to the sale of the Derby St Parcel to be used for the establishment of a Charter School. the expansion and location would negatively impact the existing 18 schools within 1 mile of this proposed site. The Blueprint for Quality Schools states the need for all schools to consider facility condition, location, future growth, and program development; none of which ASPIRE has shown to be a legitimate reason for expansion. In fact, they have not yet presented expansion plans to the Board of Education.
