How far can Red Clay’s Admin blow smoke up Red Clay’s school board member’s ass?

Appears Red Clay school board members are being spoon fed information on Delaware College Preparatory  Academy ( a Red Clay chartered school) on progress of the school probation and review! Sounds like board member Thompson is pulling teeth to get direct information.  

Sounds like DCPA is struggling in meeting requirements of their probation. Thompson had to ask if DCPA is still on probation! Had to ask!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! ” 

“Board minute update at the current time”

So where is May’s minutes? Where are the meeting “agendas” for any of the months? What about the Citizen Budget Oversight Committee meeting minutes?  Last minute report was January 2014 (February 2104 and March 2014 were canceled due to pending snow storm) Last required monthly financial report was April 2015 . The law specifies MONTHLY !! Who are the CBOC members???  Committee Members
“DCPA is revamping our Oversight Committee and we are seeking members.” WTF ???????????????

Merv I am sorry, you are do a shit job filling the charter school oversight responsibility! And OMG, a board member has to ask “if DCPA is still on probation” 

Where are the monthly minutes of the charter oversight committee meeting ?? re: probation ??? 

It is obvious the Red Clay board is not invested in the Red Clay charter school issues! DCPA is struggling and their charter renewal is coming up in a few months! DCPA is structurally flawed and can’t meet enrollment requirements and the solution is  ask for a modification to lower enrollment?? Don’t tell me no Red Clay board member is on the DCPA charter review committee!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! WHERE ARE THOSE MEETING MINUTES???

Damn this school is tracking towards closure whereas yep, children will pay the price! What I see hear is , Red Clay lacks the capacity to effective provide quality oversight to right the ship!

Dear Red Clay Board Members! Now is the the time to demand all data and information from “MERV”. You should be given a comprehensive monthly charter report and as for Red Clay charters on probation, minutes should afforded an posting following state protocol. Why should I be required to file a FOIA for information that is required by law to be posted??    

Looks at this, not one Red Clay board member on Red Clay’s charter school review committee.
