Florida: Failing Charter School Will Re-Open as a Voucher School

A charter school in Clay County, Florida, received two consecutive F grades from the state and is losing its contract.

But never fear!

The Orange Park Performing Arts Academy will not close! It is converting to a private school and has assured its students that they are all eligible to receive scholarships from the state of Florida!

“The charter has been terminated, the school has not closed. The district has no power to close Orange Park Performing Arts Academy, they can terminate their contract. We need to be very clear because at the end of the day, it’s all about the students,” said Chris Norwood, president and founder of the Miami-based Florida Association of Independent Charter Schools Inc.

Yes, it is all about the students!

Here is the letter that the school sent to parents.

Who will save these children from a failing charter school that will now be a failing private school?
