DOVER, Del. (AP) - State education officials are meeting to consider what action to take regarding renewal applications from two Delaware charter schools.
Officials were to meet Tuesday to discuss renewing the charters of the Academy of Dover and Prestige Academy Charter School.
Prestige opened in 2008 as Delaware's first single-gender charter school, serving an all-male student population in grades five through eight. The state charter school accountability committee unanimously recommended in December that Prestige Academy's charter be renewed for another five years.
Academy of Dover opened in 2003 and serves students in kindergarten through fourth grade. Problems at the school led officials to grant a conditional charter renewal in 2007, but the school has made significant changes since then.
