Decision on NC Connections virtual public charter is delayed once again
The state’s Charter Schools Advisory Board (CSAB) was stuck on a decision for months and eventually decided to punt to the State Board of Education. On Thursday, at its monthly meeting, the SBE punted back.
The ball being punted back and forth? One of North Carolina’s two virtual charter schools: N.C. Connections Academy (NCC), home to more than 2,400 students. NCC is in a bitter dispute with its Education Management Organization (EMO), Pearson OBL, and unless a resolution can be found soon the school could face closure.
