There’s a lot going on this week!

CEB applications due today
Today is the last day for new or existing charters to apply for occupancy in the Community Education Building (for Fall 2014). Decisions will be made by the end of June by a committee of out-of-town carpetbaggers.

This is the second cohort; in the first cohort only Kuumba was accepted for fall 2013. Tomorrow’s charter hearing presumably includes approval of a charter modification for Kuumba.

Oh and by the way, the total number of seats for CEB has been bumped up once again, to 2800.

Charter school public hearing
There is a charter school public hearing tomorrow at 5pm. The formal agenda isn’t released yet, but they can legally publish it up to 6 hours before the meeting as long as it is accompanied by an explanation for the delay.

Report on Red Clay SuperPAC meeting
I attended the SuperPAC meeting last week and heard a lot about how much the process involved parents. Ironically, I can’t report on the actual recommendations of the Grade Reporting committee presented partially at the meeting, because they haven’t released them to parents. When I get the documents I will post them here.
