The Christina School District Board of Education voted 5-2 to table the Memorandum of Understanding between the Christina School District and Delaware Governor John Carney’s office. In a nutshell, this means it isn’t dead but will most likely come up at a future board meeting. Carney’s office gave Christina a deadline of February 28th to approve the whole thing, even the portion which would consolidate five schools into two. The two no votes belonged to board members John Young and Elizabeth Paige.
Carney is going to be one pissed off Governor tonight! In my opinion, this MOU was a bait and switch to begin with. Now that the Christina Board has essentially said “screw you and your MOU”, he can REALLY go after the district. Which means he will bring out the big guns and threats of charter conversion. These are predictions on my end with nothing to base them on. Nothing but history. To see the latest draft, please see below:
