The LA Unified board voted on petitions for a number of charter schools at Tuesday’s meeting. Four requests were approved, one was denied while another current charter school’s status was suspended.
Here’s the scorecard:
Approved: Ánimo Avalon Charter Middle School, the Math and Science College Preparatory-East High School, the PUC Inspire Charter Academy Middle School, and the Westside Innovative School House Secondary Middle School. They will serve 1,704 middle and high school students under the auspices of the charter school system.
Denied: ICEF Vista Business and Finance Academy, which would have added an additional 650 students to the charter migration.
Suspended: Garr Academy of Mathematics and Entrepreneurial Studies in South L.A., pending the charter’s governing board agreement to “specific corrective actions.”
