At the State Board of Education meeting today, NC Innovative School District (ISD) Superintendent, Dr. Eric Hall, requested and was granted a waiver by the Board to extend, by 60 days, the deadline for recommending a school operator for Southside Ashpole Elementary in Rowland, NC. The original deadline stated in legislation was February 15, 2018.
Two entities submitted applications for consideration by the ISD. They were North Carolina-based Achievement for All Children (AAC) and The Romine Group based out of Michigan. SchoolWorks, a third-party evaluation firm, evaluated the applications and submitted individual reports on each organization to the ISD on their findings. “I greatly appreciate the willingness of the two organizations to engage with us in this rigorous vetting process,” said Dr. Hall.
