Tennessee reveals quicker exit plan for schools in the Achievement School District

Smith said her concerns about the school started with Tatum's salary, which is among the top half of superintendent salaries in the state despite the small enrollment in the school. "There are those who unashamedly, unabashedly said their intent is to take 50 percent of our students and they are competing against us".

Most charter schools are new starts, but the bulk of the ASD's charters are in existing schools that have struggled for years.

García said, "Kids of color and kids of poverty have depended on us for 160 years and we have not come through for them".

"Keeping taxes down is something the board is always mindful of, while maintaining academic quality", Sullivan said.

Jennifer Freemon is a member of the Glendale Unified School District school board. I have nothing to do with the board. He said the students would be better served in other Cobb schools.

School Board Attorney Tom Reeves, after reading over the letter, stated that Jefferson County's situation wasn't the same kind of conversion that the Florida Statutes were referring to in laying out the "51 percent requirement", thus the statute did not apply.

"I firmly believe that we must have comprehensive and meaningful accountability for all charter schools and we must ensure that they serve all students, but I oppose this legislative package as now written", Gonez said in an email.

The Cobb School District is the International Academy of Smyrna's authorizer. "I don't see why we wouldn't give them a chance", she said during the board's work session Wednesday afternoon.

"Even though it wasn't Cobb's job, we provided as much support as we could", he said.

Tatum said the school is projected to end this school year with as much as $90,000 in positive balances despite having to repay the state some $212,000 that was initially distributed on the basis of incorrect data.

Board members approved documents that will be sent to the Kentucky Board of Education for approval. "You just made another one tonight". Lisa Haley, special-education division manager in the Education Department, voted against the motion, saying she would have preferred to put the school on probation.

The board also heard a progress update on a new elementary school going up on Russellville Road next to Henry F. Moss Middle School. It's expensive to turn around schools or open a new one in an area losing school-age students as impoverished families vacate; running them requires enough students and funding to provide necessary supports.

At the same time the Shakopee School District is reviewing how an unanticipated $4.5 million budget deficit came to be, the school board responsible for district oversight is now looking into the overall organizational health of the district.

Tripp Walter, an attorney for the Arkansas Public School Resource Center, an organization that advocates and assists charter schools and rural schools, said his organization has committed to expand the services it provides for the Rockbridge School.
