The old Maurice J Moyer Academy was taken over be the Delaware Department of Education who in-turn hire K12.Inc to operate Moyer for SY2010-2011 and 2011-2012 until a permanent solution was found. The “New” Maurice J Moyer was approved to start this school year 2012-2013 the fiscal school year for all public and charter schools starts on July 1 of each year. So for The New Maurice J Moyer it was July 1 ,2012. My concern here is purely transparency nothing else. Go visit The New Maurice J Moyer Academy website and try to find the board approved FY2013 budget, who the CBOC committee members are, CBOC meeting dates. agenda and minutes, the board of directors meeting dates, agenda, minutes, IRS990 forms and no monthly finanical reports.
What a wonderful for a “new” Delaware charter school to start, IN THE DARK!
I have a hunch the Delaware Secretary of Education Mark Murphy will be selling The New Maurice J Moyer to Pencader parents and students! Good old Delaware Department of Education, setting up parents and students for another let down! Never forget, some of Pencader shortcomings led right back the Delaware Department of Education and the Delaware State Board of Education sits around with their thumbs up their asses and doesn’t do a damn thing about theses school websites that create stealth school operations closed to public view! The public shouldn’t have to file FOIA because the Delaware Department of Education and Delaware State Board of Education turns a blind-eye to schools that can’t adhere to transparent even when mandated by legislation.
No Cindy and Publius I am not picking on another charter school or the charter school movement! You both come in trying to save Pencader that was on it’s death bed but you did nothing before as Pencader slipped into the dark-side of transparency. Will you put up the same fight for The New Maurice J Moyer Academy? Publius if you were in here just to try to save Pencader and not to address the transparency shortfalls damaging public education shame on you!
To the state legislators who visit Kilroy’s Delaware, go to Moyer’s website and see for yourselves! Also, there are other charter schools lacking in transparency and even some public school districts. We need uniform laws with “$$$ fines” to the schools and district who fail to comply. Government cannot be it’s own watchdog! Give the people the tools and we will flush out those who capitalize on public education and set roadblocks for real parental and community involvement
Wake up Moyer parents and own “your” school!
