The organization that ran a ton of back-end business operations for many Delaware charter schools is kaput. Their website is unavailable and their Facebook page hasn’t been updated since 2015. While details are few about when and why they shut down, I will write more details as they emerge.
I’ve written about Innovative Schools many times on this blog. They have been involved in the financial aspect of schools such as The Delaware Met and the Academy of Dover when they had their fraud there with Noel Rodriguez. I did call their phone number which still answers as Innovative Schools but no one picks up. You can leave a message. Not sure what is going on there.
The company was founded in 2008 by former Christina School District Director Debbie Doordan. Another noteworthy past President of the company was Riccardo Stoeckicht who now works at Odyssey Charter School in the position of “Global Education Campus Operations Officer”. His name has been affiliated with recent financial misdoings at the school. As part of a long list of reasons, Odyssey is under formal review with the Delaware Department of Education.
