Title
F-14. Charter Renewal Recommendation for Educational Horizons Charter School

Discussion
The charter contract for Educational Horizons Charter School expires on June 30, 2008. Educational Horizons, located in West Melbourne, has been in operation in Brevard County since 1998. According to §1002.33(8)(b), Florida Statutes, the School must be notified of the District's intent to renew the charter contract ninety (90) days prior to the expiration date. Staff completed a comprehensive review of the charter school. The school is in good standing academically as well as financially; therefore, the recommendation is to renew the charter contract for ten (10) years.

Recommendation
Approve the charter renewal contract for Educational Horizons Charter School.
