Good old Freire. Not even open yet, and just look at the issues. I love how this formal review notification doesn’t even mention the fact they just had a major modification approval for lowing their enrollment from 336 to 224 the month before…
Prestige Academy needs to get their enrollment up very fast! No excuses. This school has been open for a while now. Whatever issues they are having, they need to fix them if they want to stay open!
Delaware Design Lab is under formal review. For this school, there are no more chances for another one-year extension. I met the Head of School, Christina Alaverez, at the Imagine Delaware Expo and had a very nice chat with her. She explained the school’s philosophy and academics, and I thought it was pretty cool. I asked how students with disabilities could adapt to that curriculum, and she gave me a very straightforward and honest answer. I saw her again after the Formal Review announcements and I told her I was sorry about the designation and I hoped it worked out. I’m actually rooting for this school!
There are two things that are officially confirmed with this letter. Someone at the school was using purchase cards unethically since July of 2012. The second thing is the lawsuit between Academy of Dover and Mosaica is finally talked about by the Delaware DOE.
