Title
2017-2018 Charter Application Recommended for Approval

Discussion

Brevard Public Schools received an application from Pinecrest Academy, Inc. (K-8) to become operational in the 2018-2019 school year.

In accordance with Section 1002.33, F.S. a sponsor shall by majority vote to approve or deny an application no later than ninety (90) days after the applicant was received by the Division of Equity, Innovation and Choice.  The applicant 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 Pinecrest Academy, Inc.'s application, utilizing the Florida Department of Education (FLDOE) evaluation instrument, the review team conducted an interview on October 11, 2017 followed by a discussion of the proposed charter.

The supporting documents are attached to the agenda item.
