Catheys Valley Elementary shut down last year. Now parents there are asking Mariposa County's School Board to approve a petition to open the Sierra Foothill Charter School in the former Cathey's Valley Elementary building.

The school would serve about 90 students and would start with six full time staff members plus a part time teacher's aide. But opponents worry it will take funding away from the rest of the district during an already difficult time.
