Freire Charter School in Wilmington State Board Decision: Probation

Freire Charter School also put on probation by Mark Murphy and State Board.  Smelling a theme here.  Probation until 12/31/15.  Conditions: Transportation plan by 6/30/15 and update in October on this, special education requirements in terms of implementing services for students with disabilities on IEPs.

Heffernan said having a plan and knowing what it is in it and what is required are different things.  Melendez is talking about safety and insurance worries with dropping off students away from the school.  Going back and forth among board members and timeframes.

Heffernan asking about if a new charter has to have a major modification request if they change buildings.  No one is talking about part of state code about community impact on location.

Just wanted to remark: Mark Murphy just actually smiled.  This doesn’t happen often, so I feel the need to capture this.

Unanimous yes vote for probation.

I am a proud parent of a son with Tourette's Syndrome and several other co-morbidities. I write on this blog to educate other parents so they know a bit more about not only special education, but all the really bad things that are happening with public schools in Delaware and the USA. We are all in this together, and if our children aren't able to advocate for themselves it's up to us parents! We need to stop letting companies run our schools, and demand our children get a proper education. Our Departments of Education in our states have become weak with fear from the bullying US DOE, and we need to take back our schools!
