Charter Board Votes To Close SouthEast Academy 

The D.C. Public Charter School Board voted last evening to close SouthEast Academy. The revocation process had been started by the Board at the conclusion of their five year review of this school. The Board was prepared to allow SouthEast Academy to operate for an additional year if they replaced their Board of Directors and administrators. I guess the school decided it didn't want to do this and so at a meeting last night the charter was revoked.

SouthEast Academy represents the first charter school closed by the D.C. Public Charter School Board. Now 700 kids have to find a new place to attend next year. I'm glad they are holding this school accountable for not meeting the goals of their accountability plan.
