ADELANTO, Calif. (AP) — Two mothers opposed to the turnover of a Mojave Desert school to a charter school operator have been charged with vandalizing one of the school's classrooms.

Last year the school district in Adelanto became the first subject to California's so-called "parent trigger" law, landmark legislation that allows parents to force radical change at a failing school through a petition.

The San Bernardino Sun reports Saturday that two mothers who opposed the action, Chrissy Guzman and Lori Marie Yuan, are accused of spreading ketchup, mustard and paint around a classroom at Desert Trails Elementary School in June, days before it was handed over to the charter operator.

District attorney's spokesman Christopher Lee says the damage plus the cost of cleanup total $8,000.

Efforts to reach the women were unsuccessful.
