OUSD staff laid out their thinking in a presentation to the school board onApril 10th. This presentation showed some of the financial projections related to the closure of Roots International Academy and the expansion of Coliseum College Prep (CCPA) into the Roots space. The district projects that the total savings from these changes would only be about $60,000 in their first year before CCPA is able to take any new students in. But the district also projects that, as CCPA expands, they will actually attract more students into the district, as there will be more seats available in their program, which is in high demand for families. Over time, this increase in student population will provide the most of the positive benefit of the consolidation of Roots and CCPA, for a total impact of more than $600,000 per year in 2022-23.
