PALM BEACH, Fla., April 6, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Following a unanimous decision by the Charter School Appeal Commission, Renaissance Charter School, Inc. has won a second in a recent series of charter school appeals put forth by the Palm Beach County School Board. After presenting to the Commission on the charter application for the newly-proposed Renaissance Charter High School at Palm Beach, the commission decided in favor of Renaissance Charter School, Inc. to overturn the Palm Beach County School Board's denial.
The Palm Beach County School Board had appealed on unwarranted issues, even though it had previously approved substantially the same application six times prior. Renaissance Charter School, Inc. currently governs six K-8 schools in Palm Beach County.
"We are thrilled for the parents of students who are searching for a Renaissance Charter high school option for their children," said Ken Haiko, chairman of Renaissance Charter School, Inc. "It is frustrating to waste resources and tax dollars continuing a battle against choice when clearly the law is on the side of the parents and the students. We hope the School Board of Palm Beach County will stop this frivolous and expensive campaign against our school and against the right of parents to choose their child's best educational option."
The fight is not yet over, however. The next level appeal will be heard again before the State Board of Education and is currently scheduled for May, 2016 in Orlando.
