Mike O raised some concerns the Newark Charter requested previous school records as part of the application process. I pretty much said he was full of shit because, Newark Charter does not use a specific interest preference as Charter School of Wilmington and they “only” use the 5 mile radius , sibling preference and employee / board children preference. well here it is, a copy of Newark Charter School 2011-12 application. READ THE FINE PRINT AT THE BOTTOM!
“Signing this form authorizes Newark Charter School to access this student’s school records for purposes of evaluating this application”
Holy shit !!!!!!!!!!! Smoking gun on this one Mike O. Why do they need this information prior to applicant being admitted?? NCS does not use specific interest preference!!!!!!!!! Looks like someone is playing a slick game of cherry picking or something! Hey Lizzie, somebody needs to come clean 🙂 I wonder are some of these applicants being counseled out prior to the lottery? Hey DOE Dan, what do you make of this? I am shocked!!!!!!!!!!
