  • L.A. School Board Puts Money And Lobbying Muscle Behind State Bills Drafted To Shackle Charter Schools

Tony Mendoza (D-Artesia) would help avoid this scenario by allowing the local authorizer, the locally elected school board, to determine what is best in the local district. Long story short, the charter school never opened. His salary past year was $153,249, Young said.

"This is the result of many hours of work by the District Educational Improvement Council, and we want to thank them", said Kim Caddell, director of research, assessment and accountability. The four goals the charter school did complete were based on student attendance such as no more than 10 percent of the school's students missing more than 50 school days a year.

Teachers with Rank II certification will also see an increase, McIntyre said.

By law, school districts are now required to use electronic ballot marking devices, which will be provided and operated by the Board of Elections. "Everything we are asking for we all know we need it and I believe county commission believes we need it", said District 5 school board member Karitsa Jones. I have nothing to do with the board.

Bianca Isom, a parent of two charter school students, said the charter school's nontraditional learning environment created a familial bond among the students and families.

Contracts signed by both Gestalt Community Schools and KIPP contain no penalties for exiting the Achievement School District before agreements run out, according to documents obtained by Chalkbeat. "That would be a great raise for me", Smith said.

Still, there's more at stake with turnaround districts like the ASD, said Morris, a Klondike alumna who is now executive director of the Klondike Smokey City Community Development Corp.

Board members approved documents that will be sent to the Kentucky Board of Education for approval.

Pfeffer told Tatum that "it was concerning" that the average experience of teachers on the staff is one year, and that the lack of teaching experience makes sustained academic improvement hard to achieve. She says most of the students read at sixth grade level.

The school also has a almost all-new board of directors, whose members are just beginning board training on how to set policies and budgets.

The charter panel had conducted a hearing on the school in March but tabled any decision until Wednesday's meeting to give the school leaders time to make progress on correcting a range of concerns.

The Cobb School District will reopen its school choice program to allow International Academy of Smyrna's 1,000 students to apply to attend a Cobb school other than the school their neighborhood is zoned to attend.

"Eliminating charter school appeal rights on the substance of a petition or renewal violates the core concept of due process relied upon to overcome hostile bureaucrats and school boards who see California public school children as an ATM machine", EdVoice President Bill Lucia wrote.

The services from the resource center are conditioned on the school selecting new leadership by June 30, Walter said.
