Education in Oakland

Uprep Yard Sale

Posted by novometro on August 31, 2007

Under the leadership of Isaac Haqq, University Preparatory Charter Academy allegedly swindled more than $200,000 from taxpayers by filing false attendance data. Who knows how many unpaid bills were left in the school’s accounts payable folder when Oakland Unified School District closed the school in July? According to school district officials, final accounting of the school’s debts is pending. Meantime, Liane Zimny, the school’s last director and OUSD’s former director of charter school oversight, is offering to sell Uprep’s last remaining assets to still functioning charter schools in the market for “textbooks, novels, and other school supplies.”
