Providence Creek Academy’s board minutes for June confirm explicitly why the Delaware State Auditor is investigating them. Once again, it is for unauthorized use of a state-issued purchase card. But whodunit?
I can say one thing for sure: it’s not Chuck Taylor. I’ve heard who it was, but all I can say is the person no longer works there. But what I can give credit to Chuck for is the quote in the article I posted earlier this morning:
“Head of School Report: School is completed for this year. This year should go down in the history books as gone for good and never have history repeat itself. We need to learn from the past.”
Providence Creek did have one hell of a year. Between janitors with guns on the property, an administrator’s son getting canned for inappropriate internet use (and he was the tech guy), an outgoing employee allegedly threatening to “blow up the school” most likely in jest but still deemed enough of a credible threat to have Delaware Homeland Security come in, and then the craziest part: they hire a head of school who gets deathly ill from some weird bug poisoning in the Bahamas.
I have to admit, when I read what Chuck wrote up above, I cracked up. Oh, and we can’t forget the bizarre Facebook posts stemming from the first three incidents, the whole Chuck-Delaware Charter Schools Network-Charter School Accountability Committee controversy, and the whole reveal of the school being investigated by the State Auditor, revealed nowhere else but the school’s own board minutes! This is why they got an A+ for transparency. And just to top all of this off, they are up for charter renewal this fall! Below are the board minutes with the purchase card stuff:
