New rules will aim to make charter schools more inclusive
Last year, the charter school board approved American Leadership Academy – Summerlin, only to have the school come back with an amendment to change their name to Signature Preparatory Academy and open in Henderson instead. Guinasso noted the school came to the board only after they’d already purchased property in Henderson. The relocation altered expansion plans being researched and set by Clark County School District, which expected the new school to be built in Summerlin.
Guinasso characterized the change as the school “asking for forgiveness rather than permission.”
