The Vindicator in Youngstown has a strange story about two troubled charter schools that apparently were trying to relocate in the Akron area and were advertising for students in Doylestown. However, the schools were shut down by their sponsor, the Portage County Educational Service Center, before they could get off the ground. The reporter called me last week asking if I'd heard of the schools ( I hadn't). I talked with the enrollment specialist at Akron Public Schools who tracks charter schools and she said she hadn't heard of them either. However, she said sometimes the district won't find out about students who have transferred to a charter school until a month after the fact.
