Blue Ribbon Commission which is involved in the charter school idea -- includes very talented people, as well as NHCS administrators. Don't understand how so many people could have mis-read or mis-understood what was required on the application. Sounds like the charter school concept is a no-go. Now, Virgo will still be a part of NHCS, overseen by the Board of Ed. UNLESS the board is willing to hand over the decision-making fully to an "Academy Board"??
Earlier this fall there were stories in the news about how some in the community were not trusting of the charter school process, i.e. "is this for real?" How the decision went down -- basically because someone who wrote the application didn't provide enough detail -- does not encourage trust in leaders who were promoting the idea.
It is what it is -- as a community we'll have to make the best of it and move forward.
