Anyone even remotely associated with Family Foundations Academy needs to bear all about this school, and now would be the time to do it. If you know of any problems there such as financial mismanagement, bullying issues, abuse, harassment, special education issues, test manipulation, anything, please be honest and let the Delaware Department of Education Charter School Office know what’s really going on there. Children are the victims of the outright fraud and manipulation perpetrated by the Heads of School there. In the end, it doesn’t really matter who spent more on school credit cards for personal use. It’s not right, and anything else that has gone on there needs to be brought to the surface. This message is also for teachers, former teachers, staff members and any board member that wants to come clean.
Delaware Secretary of Education Mark Murphy and the Delaware State Board of Education will make a decision on the charter renewal of Family Foundations Academy at the January 15th State Board of Education meeting. They are also extending public comment until the end of the day on January 12th.
As per the charter school office website:
On December 18, pursuant to the approval of the Family Foundations Academy Board of Directors to waive the 60-day time period for a decision on its renewal application, the Secretary of Education deferred the decision to allow for necessary due diligence on potentially serious allegations of financial mismanagement. The Secretary of Education will announce his decision at the January 15, 2015 State Board of Education meeting, to be held at 1:00 p.m. in the Townsend Building in Dover.
Under the original renewal process timeline, the deadline for public comment was Friday, December 12 and the record closed prior to the December 18 State Board of Education meeting. Since the timeline for FFA’s renewal has been extended, the DOE will also extend the timeline in which public comments may be submitted and materials may be added to the record. The new deadline for all public comment and new materials will be Monday, January 12, at 11:59 p.m.
