Academia Alonso Academy Charter Head of School Put On “Extended Leave”

This was confirmed this morning.  Head of School Peter Barry for Academia Alonso Academy has been placed on “extended leave” as confirmed by the school this morning.  No details have emerged as to the reasoning behind this, but multiple sources have confirmed this brand new charter school in the Community Education Building in Wilmington, Delaware is having many problems in developing a curriculum.

This would be the third charter school in Delaware in the past four months to have a head of school either put on leave or terminated, following Academy of Dover and Family Foundations Academy.  Barry had previously worked for the Christina School District.  This is in reference to the article I posted yesterday but was not able to publish until I got confirmation.

  1. does anyone know if this group of Alonso’s is related to Andreas (Andy)Antonio Alonso, the former Baltimore Schools boss who set up the board so that Baltimore public schools could be taken over by charters?
