Discussion

On June 30, 2011, the School Board took action to provide the City of Palm Bay, the governing body of the Palm Bay Municipal Charter High School, a ninety (90) day notice of termination of the charter school contract pursuant to Section 1002.33(8)(b), Florida Statutes, for failure to meet generally accepted standards of fiscal management.

On July 14, 2011 the City's Attorney delivered a letter to the School Board Attorney advising that the City Council voted unanimously at its June 23, 2011, special meeting to not contest or appeal the School Board's termination of the charter school contract.

Based upon and in reliance on the City's action to not contest the termination and waiver of the right to appeal the terminiation it is recommended that the School Board adopt and enter the attached Final Order terminating the charter school contract effective July 19, 2011.
