In a shocking and unexpected announcement yesterday, the Academy of Dover is not meeting the terms of their probation! Once again, it is all related to financial transparency! Seems they can’t get their act together…
When will they ever learn? And do I mean the DOE or Academy of Dover? Both! This school has been flaunting the rules for years now. The DOE needs to shut them down. If they aren’t following the terms of their probation (which I think they got off very easy with), they need to go back on formal review!
UPDATED, 8/21/15, 1:47PM: I reached out to DOE Public Information Officer Alison May to find out if the State Board of Education acted on the news Academy of Dover is in violation of their probation terms, and she indicated they did NOT take any formal decision on the violations.
They should have always had a Citizens Budget Oversight Committee. The fact they can’t even get this group to meet regularly with the majority of members to actually show up is sending a clear message to citizens and parents of Delaware: we will do what we want and the DOE will let us. Only the DOE can reverse this arrogant trend!
And the oddest part about this report? The last page entitled “Good News” with a blank page. This says it all!
