Trustees will hear their staff recommendation on Thursday.  

"Last year we had over 70% of our graduating class accepted to four year colleges and this year we expect to continue that rise to over 80%." 

P.K. Diffenbaugh is co-principal of Sac High Charter School.

On KXJZ’s Insight, he said before Saint Hope took over Sac High, only 20% to 30% of graduating students were accepted into college.

But Manny Hernandez, who heads the Sacramento City School Board, told Insight that’s because the school has fewer students.   

"When you do have a smaller school you can devote more attention to the students you have and some outside resources have been poured in that have helped as opposed to the state and the federal government don’t shower money upon public schools."

Trustees are expected to vote on the Sac High charter renewal on December 20th.
