SB 808 would rein in charter schools

23 April, 2017

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. The superintendent recommended opening school choice only to IAS students.

Mary Elizabeth Davis, the district's chief academic officer, said charter schools are created to outperform other schools, but the International Academy of Smyrna only outperformed the Cobb School District two of the last three school years.

"They are needs, not wants". The school had no location, no clear plan for curriculum, only a plan that would take many years to implement.

"This is a year like I've never seen before", he said.

"This letter has no merit", Reeves said at the time, an opinion he has maintained at subsequent board meetings. School board members said. I have nothing to do with the board. State law doesn't provide for that classification for charter schools, he said.

It also provides the ability to lengthen or shorten school days as necessary for professional development, collaboration opportunities for educators and structured breaks throughout the year for students.

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.

"As I understand, they're three weeks behind their normal turnaround", he said. "We have to be sensitive to the realities that shaped operators not being able to sustain the work".

Tatum said the school is projected to end this school year with as much as $90,000 in positive balances despite having to repay the state some $212,000 that was initially distributed on the basis of incorrect data.

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. Lisa Haley, special-education division manager in the Education Department, voted against the motion, saying she would have preferred to put the school on probation.

One of the candidates seeking to fill Ratliff's seat, Kelly Gonez, who teaches at a charter middle school in South Los Angeles, said she would not have supported the resolution and she regretted the board's vote.

Warren County Public Schools' employees should expect a minimum 1 percent salary increase effective July 1 after a decision from the district's school board Thursday night. She says most of the students read at sixth grade level. Additionally, Davis said the charter school only met four of its 21 goals it set for itself in its most recent charter, which the Cobb School District approved in 2012.

Gov. Dannel P. Malloy's proposed 2017-18 state budget would mean a net loss of $4.3 million in state aid for the town, but under the advisement of state legislators the finance board decided not to plan for Malloy's proposal to shift one-third of teacher pension costs to municipalities.
