What makes char­ters suc­cess­ful?

Las Vegas Review-Journal - - FROM THE COVER -

Amer­i­can Prepara­tory Academy, which be­gan in Utah, uses a cur­ricu­lum across all its cam­puses that em­braces cur­sive, teaches Latin and en­sures that stu­dents across all grades are learn­ing the same top­ics.

“We do what’s best for the kids,” Rachelle Hulet said. “If it’s best for the kids to move ahead, if it’s best for the kids to go back a few les­sons or to go back an­other group.”

Its el­e­men­tary and mid­dle school are rated five stars. Yet 2017-18 state data show that only 5 per­cent of its stu­dents had an in­di­vid­ual ed­u­ca­tion plan and 3 per­cent were English lan­guage learn­ers. But not all char­ters are suc­cess­ful.

The School Board has rec­om­mended a shakeup in lead­er­ship at Delta Academy and 100 Academy of Ex­cel­lence and a re­me­di­a­tion plan for Rain­bow Dreams. It will re­visit those rec­om­men­da­tions at a meet­ing Jan. 24.
