I have never heard of a charter school basing their model solely on first responders. I’ll just get that out in the open. It is a rather unique model, but for a secondary school model? I don’t know if I would choose to send my child there, even if he wanted to be a first responder. Apparently, many parents agree as the school’s enrollment is precariously low. Even though the Charter School Accountability Committee thinks things are on the upswing, it is based on estimates. If their current trends continue, Delaware Academy of Public Safety & Security will be on life support very soon. The DOE will be on them, STAT! (Sorry, had to do it!)
The Delaware GOP Chairman, Charlie Copeland, is also the President of DAPSS Board of Directors. When I posted an article about the school’s low numbers the other day, Mike Matthews shared the article on Facebook which drew Copeland to the school’s defense. He responded to my many questions about their enrollment issues and the timing of their modification request with the following:
Just simply call the school and take a tour. You can get answers to all your questions. Be prepared to have your socks knocked off. Life is so much simpler if you just do the right thing rather than join the wackos who make up conspiracies.
I may just take him up on it! I’ve never had my socks knocked off! In the meantime, take a look at the Charter School Accountability Committee’s initial report on their major modification request to officially lower their already low enrollment.
