The Delaware Academy of Public Safety and Security, which has been struggling to retain students and uphold academic standards, on Tuesday announced that it would be closing its doors — immediate
“Has been struggling.” Delaware Secretary of Education Susan Bunting should have seen closure coming and had a plan in place.
Margie Lopez-Waite, who was recently made head of school at DAPSS, said the deficit is more than $500,000. Former Head of School Herbert Sheldon, who previously served as the school’s chief financial officer, is no longer with DAPSS.
By law the Delaware Department of Education is to have a DE DOE representative present at every Citizen Budget Oversight Committee and be an active part of the committee aka member. How in the hell did Bunting and her CBOC puppet member not see this coming!
“To our students, please know that we believe in you and what you mean to the future in our community,” the school board said in its letter. “Just yesterday, our students were out in the community visiting local public safety personnel on their yearly Day of Service.
“Your new schools will be lucky to have students with such energy and spirit. We wish you all well.”
If I were a student or parent of Delaware Academy of Public Safety and Security I’d tell them to go fuck themselves! These people and Bunting should be sued for child abuse on the grounds of under emotional abuse!
Governor John Carney is like a ship without a rudder when it come to Delaware’s public schools. The reason Delaware public school “system” ( not 90% of the teachers) is because former Governor Markell hand the helm of our public school system over to the likes of Rodel and current Governor Carney has an idiot (Bunting) as the rudder steering our public school system.
As always no one will be held accountable and the school closes and buries critical $$$ documentation hat could lead to federal charges of misappropriating federal funds and state funds. Bunting school have gone to court to get a court order seizing school records including financial records. As for our state legislators! Where is legislation modifying the charter school law that would require all school records including financial records be turned-over to DE DOE when it either order closed or close under its own accord.
Very sad day in Delaware public school history! Can you imagine what students and parents of this school are feeling and what they have to go through! By law in my opinion they school be given a seat in all public or charter school they choose ! Bunting and Carney have failed these children and will come up with some lame-ass excuse to cover their pathetic ass!
