After Firings, Board Shakeup, School Gets Charter Renewed

Posted:

DOVER, Del. (AP) - State education officials say a charter school whose two leaders were fired for repeatedly using school credit cards for personal use will be allowed to remain open next year.

But officials said Thursday that Family Foundations Academy also will be placed on formal review. That process is designed to see if a school is violating the terms of its charter and to determine whether remedial measures are needed.

Meanwhile, the state auditor's office is completing its own investigation of the school. A financial audit said more than $100,000 in questionable expenditures should be reviewed.

Officials said that in deciding to renew Family Foundations' charter, Education Secretary Mark Murphy noted that school co-directors Sean Moore and Tennell Brewington were fired this week and that most of the school's board members resigned.
