Controversy[edit]

In 2007, after a parent complaint, a district internal and an outside audit found that funds raised by graduating classes were used for school improvement projects by administrators. No misappropriation of funds was found or alleged; all funds were used for the school. Administrators produced student body minutes for items approved by the students and from previous class officers. The Contra Costa times printed a retraction and correction August 6, 2010 for previous misstatements by the newspaper suggesting misappropriation by administrators.[11]
