Sources from the meeting at Delaware Academy of Public Safety and Security tonight are saying the Delaware charter school is shut down effective immediately. Students have to find a new school to go to tomorrow.
Herb Sheldon and his ghost enrollments assuredly played a factor. I can’t begin to stress how crazy this is. He screwed over this school and now all the students will pay the price.
I’m sorry, but the Delaware Department of Education had to have some sense of how bad this was and the State Board of Education should have shut them down effective the end of the last school year. At least that way students and families could have found new schools. Instead, we have this.
I know folks tried to turn this ship around but it already hit the iceberg years ago. I also feel bad for the staff who are unemployed as of tomorrow. This has to hurt. I know I wrote a ton about this the past year. I really did hope they could turn it around.
