12-16-2014 Regular School Board Meeting
Agenda Item #47


Title
Amend the Contract for Educational Horizons Charter School

Discussion
Amend the contract for Educational Horizons dated July 1, 2008 to modify projected enrollment. Educational Horizons opened as a charter school during the 1998-1999 school year. Since that time they have remained one of our smallest charter schools. Based on their performance, Montessori focus and community interest, their Board is requesting an increase in enrollment for the duration of their contract, which ends on June 30, 2018. Currently the school has an enrollment of 101 students, however Educational Horizons is requesting to amend their enrollment of 120 beginning with the 2015-2016 school year with a subsequent cap of 135 in 2017-2018.

Recommendation
Approve the amendment of Educational Horizons Charter School to reflect changes in the projected enrollment 2014-2018.
