At the Delaware State Board of Education meeting last month, Family Foundations Academy was placed on probation by the State Board. While this seems like an easy feat to accomplish, I can’t help but remember that the Board President, Charles McDowell and the Head of School, Dr. Lamont Browne, both wrote a letter of complaint about the possibility of the school being put on probation. They felt their new relationship with the school was built on a solid, forgive the pun, foundation. However, they did not like the idea of having to use an independent auditor. I have to wonder why that would be given the financial abuse that happened under the previous heads of the school.
Read all about FFA’s conditions for their probation, but stick around after, because there is a little bonus tidbit afterwards!
Apparently, one of the former heads at FFA has reached out to a neighboring school district and is looking to volunteer their time. But this school district requires a background check for volunteers. This individual passed the background check, despite all the financial wrongdoings at FFA. That settlement agreement must have really wiped the slate clean for NOTHING to show up on a background check. Congrats Tennell!
Subject: Criminal Background Report
Good Afternoon –
The following Criminal Background Reports have come back and the individuals are cleared to volunteer by the State of DE, the FBI, and Kelli Racca:
· Alfaro-Quiros, Jennifer
· Brewington, Tennell
· Wescott, Rashad Rm. 317
While the name of the school isn’t listed, I’m sure they will be “Keene” to have her!
