They sent a 30-day notice of tuition increase on December 23, 2012 stating the tuition will go up by 25% by February 1st. This voids the contracts with parents.
They have a 50% drop in enrollment right now, and can be even more by end of the year. There is no way it is just 5-10%.
Half the board quit recently. The new board has 4 members inclued a husband and wife who control all decisions. This looks to me to be ighly unethical.

Am I supposed to feel sorry for them or cringe at their attempt to isolate themselves from the perfectly excellent Pleasanton schools ... we are very lucky to have them. I think for now I'll cringe.

Former CW parents: we have formed a Google group to get organized. Please go to the following and request membership:
If that doesn't work, please email GitaBarry@gmail.com and request access to the group. Gita and a group of parents (including an attorney parent) are leading the coordination.
I have reached out to all the local papers. I love the suggestion above to also reach out to Valley Comunity Bank and will post your suggestion on the Google page.
