“The lease agreement for the Tiyan facilities is currently at the Attorney General’s Office. .Acting Governor Tenorio also spoke to A.G. Lenny Rapadas on this issue.  We remain optimistic that the lease agreement will be finalized in time to avoid any disruption to the charter school or its students, faculty, and staff.”
