The Charter School of Wilmington, in their January 27th Board Meeting agenda, stated they would “consider” a request from the US Department of Education Office of Civil Rights to review their admissions policy. How big of them to “consider” a Federal request. Why wouldn’t they just hand it over since it’s all just a big old myth? Why would it have be a discussion at a board meeting? If I’m not mistaken, the deadline for the ACLU lawsuit to bring cases to the OCR was February 1st. Did they hear from the OCR on a separate matter or did the OCR proactively contact CSW about the ACLU lawsuit sooner? This was in conjunction with discussion about the ACLU lawsuit against the Delaware Department of Education (and Red Clay Consolidated who wasn’t mentioned in the agenda for this even though they are the authorizer and the ones who are supposed to monitor them).
I would love to tell you what actually happened at their January 27th board meeting, but it wasn’t recorded. I’m sensing a trend here! We will probably have to wait until June of this year to see the board minutes for this meeting as they haven’t updated their board minutes since their September 2014 board meeting. And folks want to give Red Clay control of more schools? They can’t monitor the charters they already have. Sorry! I already said that tonight! But in their defense, the DOE can’t either, so I guess they are just copying them. Did it again, I already said that too!
I did notice one other thing: “resolution on establishment of investment account”. I would love to hear more about that! June can’t get here quick enough! Is this a savings account or something bigger? I recommend investing in digital audio recording devices. I hear that’s all the rage these days!
