|School Board denies Neville Charter application|
The Monroe City School Board has voted down an application to convert Neville High School into a Type-2 Charter School by a vote of 3-3.
The tied vote came after a heated discussion between members of the School Board and representatives of Neville Alumni and Friends Association, or NAFA, the group that wants to establish a charter school at Neville. Earlier, the School Board approved two other charter school applications for new charter schools.
NAFA representatives said that turning down the application for a Type-2 charter school would leave them with few options other than to approach the state Board of Elementary and Secondary Education for a Type-3 charter school.
However, it was unclear if the NAFA effort would qualify for Type-3 consideration.
Prior to the vote on a previous, separate charter school issue during the meeting, State Rep. Katrina Jackson quoted the state statutes concerning the requirements a group must meet before approaching BESE to charter a school.
Jackson advised the School Board that voting down that group's application would result in the group approaching BESE for a Type-3 charter. When the Neville vote came, though, Jackson noted that both previous charter school efforts had received the formal recommendation of an independent evaluator hired to examine the applications.
Neville had not received a formal recommendation and would not qualify, according to Jackson.
