LOS ANGELES (AP) - A parents' group that won a court order to convert a struggling Mojave Desert elementary school into a charter is returning to court to force the school district to comply with the order.

The Desert Trails Parent Union filed the petition in San Bernardino County Superior Court on Tuesday, asking Judge Steve Malone to enforce the order he issued last month to the Adelanto Elementary School District.

The school board earlier this month voted to form an advisory council to oversee reforms at the low-performing Desert Trails Elementary School instead of proceeding with the charter conversion as Malone had ordered.

The parent union submitted a petition signed by more than half the school's parents in favor of the charter conversion, meeting the requirements of California's much-debated parent empowerment law.
