Grand Jury finds complaints against NU program bogus

Allegations of fraud and financial misconduct against the Nevada Union High School Telecommunications Partnership Academy have been deemed bogus by the Nevada County Grand Jury.

In a statement issued today, the grand jury said those making the complaints “made unsubstantiated and inaccurate charges…based upon misinformation and driven by personal agendas.” By state law the grand jury does not divulge who makes complaints or announce which individuals are contacted in its investigations.

But in the statement, the grand jury said it had interviewed the complainants, school personnel and reviewed reports the academy has to submit to meet state education requirements. The statement said the complainants admitted they had not even read the academy’s year report for 2005-2006.

The grand jury also said the academy has passed multiple inspections and written reviews done by the state about the program. In fact, the grand jury recommended NU create more academies for alternate career fields for students and make just a few minor adjustments to the telecommunications program.
