Decision Looming for Struggling Charter School

Posted:

DOVER, Del. (AP) - State education officials are getting closer to a final decision on the fate of a struggling charter school that serves mostly low-income black children in Wilmington.

The state Charter School Accountability Committee was to hold a final meeting Friday regarding Maurice J. Moyer Academic Institute.

The committee will issue a final report next week for the state board of education to consider on Sept. 18 following a public comment period.

Officials put Moyer on formal review last month, after it turned in the lowest standardized test scores of any Delaware charter school for the 2013-2014 school year. The results were even worse than the previous year, when less than half of Moyer students demonstrated proficiency in reading and math.

Officials also expressed other concerns involving academics, discipline, attendance and enrollment.
