Parent Brandee Davis, the president of IDEA Allan’s PTA, said the charter has met her daughter’s educational needs and she plans to stick with them.
“As parents, we are 100 percent committed to following IDEA wherever they go,” she said Tuesday.
IDEA Allan serves 544 students in kindergarten through second grades, as well as sixth grade.
If those parents pull their children from the district to follow the independent charter, the district could lose about $4.1 million in state and federal funding.
