Talk about the last minute! If the Delaware Academy of Public Safety & Security did not have a student enrollment of 200 students by tomorrow, their charter would have been revoked. They hit that number so they have met their first condition of their probation. Under 200 students would have meant the school would not have been financially viable as a non-profit public school. This is “unofficial” but I am hearing this from excellent sources so I don’t doubt the viability of this claim at all.
I don’t ever wish to see any school closed unless there is some unbelievable egregious stuff going on there (case in point: Delaware Met). I sincerely hope the school can meet the rest of their probation conditions over the coming year or so. The whole point of any school is the success of the students. I do wonder what schools won’t have these students next year. Are they coming from districts or other charters or a combination of the two? That is school choice for you and at the end of the day it is a parent’s decision!
