if a judge is sending the troubled teen to this school, or giving it to them as an option because they got themselves into legal trouble, that would give the state the right to inspect the school and make up any regulations that they deem necessary.. wouldn't it?

Sex is god now, and if you believe in restricting it in some way, even by allowing it to come to its natural end through procreation, you're a heathen to be burned at the progressive stake.
Care to link to something they have actually said or done that qualifies them as an 'anti-LGBT hate group'? Aside from defending the rights of private schools to not be forced to teach that LGBT is 'normal'?
Paci fic Justice Institute’s Brad Dacus takes on law changing California sex education curriculum
April 16, 2019
Brad Dacus, president of the Pacific Justice Institute, is coming to Grass Valley today to speak in opposition to the California Healthy Youth Act.
The law, enacted in 2016, ensures school districts teach grades seven to 12 comprehensive sexual health education and HIV prevention education.
The law provides students with knowledge and skills about natural growth and development, body image, gender, sexual orientation, relationships, marriage and family. It also promotes sexuality as a normal part of human development, and teaches students what it means to have healthy, positive and safe relationships and behaviors.
For some, that's outright hate speech and would be a punishment to have to sit there and hear it.

Searching the school to verify there was nothing to justify the rumors is not really bad, they passed that test. Did they have to bring guns in for that? It was the forcing of the school to teach their young that sexual exploration is acceptable when the religion says it isn't is crossing the line.
We've known of fringe Christian groups starting to acquire weapons and preach questionable teachings before... And we've seen our government mishandle many of those instances.
My guess in a case like this is that there is more to the story. Maybe a disgruntled former student made some things up to try and get people in trouble, or maybe it is just a classic government f# up.
But I don't think there as enough evidence out yet.
As for the part about California forcing them to allow sexual exploration, a quick google search shows that some teens have claimed to be punished before because of their orientation. While I don't think any school should be forced to allow physical interaction with kids past a hug, there has to be lines drawn on what kids can be punished for as well. I'm all for religions being able to teach that something is wrong, but punishing a kid for being gay is like punishing someone else for their religion. And we do have freedoms in this country so long as it doesn't infringe on others.

Sacramento, CA—Pacific Justice Institute (PJI) is fighting for the future of a Christian boarding school in Northern California that has been targeted by State officials. PJI believes the case has chilling implications for Christian schools throughout California.
Instead of apologizing for its dangerous blunder, the State doubled down and began imposing daily fines against the school for allegedly operating as an “unlicensed community care facility.” RVCA has actually operated as a private school for the past 25 years, filing an annual affidavit with the California Department of Education as do other private schools and homeschools in the State.
The State is now taking the position that, due to recent legislation, it is no longer possible for a private boarding school to operate without extensive licensing and oversight by the Department of Social Services. But licensing is more than just an administrative headache—it would require the Christian school to relinquish its moral standards. For instance, the State requires that licensed facilities allow students to have the right to engage in spiritual and sexual exploration, which contradicts the goals of many parents who enroll their kids in RVCA.

I won't argue that, hence why I suggested the possibility a disgruntled student may have gave a false report... I could definitely see that happening, especially with teenage kids.
