Agenda Item #18


Title
2017-2018 Charter Application Recommended for Approval

Discussion

Brevard Public Schools received an application from Pineapple Cove Classical Academy High School (9-12) to become operational in the 2018-2019 school year.

In accordance with Section 1002.22(6), F.S., a sponsor shall by majority vote approve or deny an application no later than ninety (90) days after the application was received by the Division of Equity, Innovation and Choice.  Both applicants granted the District a thirty(30) day extension to conduct a "quality" charter application review.

The Charter Application Review team was provided the charter applications via our electronic system, Charter Tools, for evaluation.  After completing a thorough review of  Pineapple Cove Classical Academy's application, utilizing the Florida Department of Education (FLDOE) evaluation instrument, the review team conducted an interview on September 20, 2017 followed by a discussion of the proposed charter.

A summary of the recommendations as well as the supporting documents are attached to the agenda item.
