If the Fresno Unified School District board cannot agree to have an outside investigator, then the concerned members and the general public should send a letter to the Fresno County Grand Jury asking that it investigate.
It is empowered to investigate the entire school district and if it finds what the 5th District Court of Appeal found, it can call for a criminal grand jury to be empaneled.
If the public and the board members want transparency, they should all write a letter addressed to Fresno County Grand Jury, 1100 Van Ness Ave. Nobody can stop the public or the concerned board members except themselves.
