Agenda Item #16


Title
Imagine Schools at West Melbourne Presentation to Address Noted Contractual Deficiencies

Discussion

Pursuant to section 1002.33(9)(n)(1), Florida Statutes, the director and a representative of the governing board of a charter school that earned a grade of "D" or "F" shall appear before the sponsor to present information concerning each contract component having noted deficiencies.  In addition, the school  must submit and receive approval of a school improvement plan to raise student achievement.

Imagine Schools at West Melbourne received a "D" grade during the 2011-2012 school year; therefore, the school must make a presentation to the Board as specified in law.  Staff met with representatives from Imagine Schools and determined that the presentation should address academic achievement, low student membership, and financial concerns.

Imagine's school improvement plan was submitted to the district.  It was reviewed by Vickie Hickey, School Improvement Resource Teacher.



Recommendation
Approve the presentation by Imagine Schools at West Melbourne to address noted contractual deficiencies, as required by law.
