|Ludley: 'That charter is dead'|
Monroe City School Board members say it is time to move past the controversy surrounding the effort to convert Neville High School into a charter school.
Board members convened an executive session during their regular meeting Tuesday to discuss Neville's Type-2 charter application that the School Board rejected Dec. 18.
Spearheaded by the Neville Alumni and Friends Association, the Neville charter endeavor was subsequently rejected Jan. 18 by Neville High School faculty and staff.
Neville's faculty and staff voted not to pursue a Type-2 charter designation for the high school, which would place Neville directly under the state Board of Elementary and Secondary Education instead of the Monroe City School Board.
School Board Vice President Mickey Traweek offered the motion to convene the executive session during Tuesday's meeting.
School Board attorney Doug Lawrence said the executive session was necessary for him to speak candidly with the School Board about the Neville charter application.
