Scheduled to open in Dublin, CA, Fall 2012, Tassajara Prep will provide a comprehensive college-prep environment that represents the highest academic and civic standards for all students, establishing a solid foundation for success in premier universities and beyond through rigorous curricula, innovative teaching practices, an expanded choice of Advanced Placement (AP) courses and extracurricular enrichment programs, and integration of the latest technology in the classroom.
Tassajara Prep’s Charter Committee submitted the petition to the Dublin Unified School District (DUSD) on Monday, January 11, 2010. Superintendent Stephen Hanke personally signed for the charter petition at exactly 11:25AM. The main body of the charter petition explains the founders’ vision for Tassajara Prep, what we promise our students, and objective measures for our success. The appendices of the charter petition include, among other important items, a draft course catalog of Tassajara Prep and a detailed fiscal plan with a five-year budget projection and a three-year cash flow projection.
DUSD will hold a public hearing to review Tassajara Prep’s petition and provide feedback to the Charter Committee within the next month. The Charter Committee requested to have the public hearing during the DUSD’s February 9, 2010 Board meeting. That meeting will be held in the DUSD Boardroom at 7471 Larkdale Avenue. All residents are encouraged to attend. DUSD Board meetings are televised on Comcast channel 28. Please check TV30′s website for the exact date and time.

Educators at Tassajara Prep will hold high expectations of their students.
