It's official: Teaneck Patch reports that the State has given the official Kibosh to a fall opening for the Shalom Academy Charter School. Board of Trustees Acting Commissioner wrote:
"The Board of Trustees and founders of Shalom Academy Charter School have not only failed to meet the necessary statutory and regulatory requirements to gain final approval, but have also not demonstrated overall leadership and organization capacity,"
They could try again next year or they can do the decent thing & move aside & let someone else with some management skills try to open a Hebrew charter in BC. If they do decide to try again, hopefully parents will make sure to "double register" & not accept any statements that say everything is rosy & we just need to take care of one small paperwork item & we're almost ready for an opening the next year.
What's that expression? Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on you. Fool me three times...
[Update: Bergen Record/Teaneck Suburbanite reported on it as well. Apparently the founder hung up on a reporter. Classy]
