Typically after a blogger posts something about the Delaware Department of Education they act pretty fast in trying to get something website related fixed. Not the case with their Charter School Renewal section of their website. I had to hunt last month’s State Board of Education agenda to find a document showing when the Charter School Accountability Committee meetings and public hearing will be held.
Last night I put up a screenshot of their charter renewal web page. It was blank. It looks like they did go into it today to modify the already blank page. How does a blank page get modified?
So like I said, I did find a timeline somewhere else.
Let’s see…today is October 15th. Looks like there are two public hearings tonight. There are three tomorrow night. Two last week. But what the heck is the public supposed to comment on when there are no renewal documents available? Are they supposed to say “I’m drawing a blank on why I love/hate this charter school?” This is an insult to the charter school crowd. I believe this is also a violation of State Code, Title 14. But what do I know? (more than the DOE these days)
Get with the program DOE! You are growing more incompetent by the day! If you are having technical issues, put a note on the page. We know you went on that page today! Did DelawareCAN/Atnre Alleyne hack into the DOE’s website last week too? And why are they having public hearings before the first CSAC meetings? Typically it is the other way around. Secretary Bunting, it is time to wake up now! This shouldn’t be THIS easy for me!
I will update this if the DOE gets around to updating their non-transparent website or they modify the blank page again.
