The Charter School Accountability Committee at the Delaware Department of Education is holding the final Public Hearings for Freire Charter School, Prestige Academy and Delaware Design Lab High School tonight in the 2nd floor auditorium at the Carvel Building in Wilmington at 5pm. Academy of Dover will have their final public hearing tomorrow night at the main Delaware DOE building across from Legislative Hall at 5pm tomorrow in the 2nd floor Cabinet Room.
These are not public hearings where the schools are on trial. Rather, it gives the public time to give comment on these schools official formal review proceedings. There is a transcript which is put on the DOE website a couple days after.
I anticipate quite a few of the community members near the new Freire sight to protest this school’s location again. For Academy of Dover, God only knows what will come out at this hearing!
