Rep. Scott Issues Statement on Closing of Pencader Charter School

Feb 22, 2013 -- 3:56am

In response to the state Board of Education’s decision Thursday to revoke the charter of Pencader Business and Finance School, House Education Committee Chair Representative Darryl Scott released a statement.

He said the state Board of Education’s decision to revoke Pencader’s charter was not one they made lightly, coming after more than six years of trying to work with the school to improve results and get it to perform to the high standards expected from charter schools.

Representative Scott says despite repeated attempts to improve the governance and organization of the school, the school’s shortcomings continued to have a negative impact on students’ educational performance and overall experience. Scott says he’s disappointed that it had to come to this.
