When you have 24 charter schools in a state, 22 of which are authorized by the state Department of Education, there are going to be years where the amount of charter renewals are going to go up. This fall, the Delaware DOE Charter School Office and the Charter School Accountability Committee are going to have their hands full as seven charter schools go through their renewal process.

Still Breakin’ The Law: Laurel School District, Charter School of New Castle, DAPSS, DE Military Academy, Eastside, Early College High School, & FreireSchool Board Audio Recordings
Hey, I know I got some districts and charters moving last weekend when I posted how they were not following state law in putting up their board audio recordings, but some of you didn’t get the message!
So… Laurel School District, Charter School of New Castle, Delaware Academy of Public Safety & Security, Delaware Military Academy, Eastside Charter School, Early College High School, and Freire… I will do this as much as I can until you are COMPLIANT with the law!
State law says you must record your board meetings and put them on your website within seven days. No excuses, no exceptions, just do it! I would have loved to go to your websites and not have to write this article. Yeah, I know, I’m a pain. But guess what? I’m not breaking the law! And until someone from the state calls you out on breakin’ the law, I’ll continue my citizen audits! Transparency Rules!
And Laurel, you need to put up your board agenda. That is a big FOIA no-no!
