Agenda Item #17
Notification of Intention to Terminate Campus Charter Contract
Florida Statute §1002.33(8)(b) requires the Sponsor to notify the charter school’s governing board of the proposed action to terminate, in writing, at least 90 days prior to terminating the charter contract.
Pursuant to §1002.33 Florida Statute, the sponsor may terminate a charter for the following reasons:
Campus Charter School has failed to meet generally accepted standards of fiscal management by not correcting deficiencies reported since March, 2015 in their monthly financials or responding to requests for clarification. Additionally, evidence has been submitted identifying missed payroll, missed debt payments and other financial concerns. RSM McGladrey has conducted an audit, submitting a summative report on August 19, 2015. The school’s annual audit, to be conducted by Berman Hopkins and Wright, serving as their external auditors, is due August 31, 2015.
