05-27-2014 Special School Board Meeting
Agenda Item #22


Title
Recommend the Approval of Pineapple Cove Classical Academy Contract

Discussion

Florida Statutes dictate that terms and conditions for the operation of a charter school shall be set forth by the Sponsor and the applicant in a written contractual agreement, called a charter.  Harold Bistline, Board Attorney, was involved in the contract negotiation process.

Pineapple Cove Classical Academy's charter application was approved by the School Board on October 22, 2013.  The charter school is schedule to open during the 2015-2016, as they elected to defer a year for planning and location identification.  Pursuant to contractual language this contract shall be automatically rescinded with no notice or further action required of the Sponsor if Pineapple Cove Classical Academy fails to open by the 2015-2016 school year.



Recommendation
Approve the charter contract for Pineapple Cove Classical Academy.
