Alpha Cornerstone Charter School Petition Update

Please see the following statement on behalf of the Franklin-McKinley School District:

On October 22, 2019, District staff presented their summary review of the Alpha Cornerstone charter school petition renewal and their recommendation for Board action. The Board of Education reviewed the District staff recommendations and voted (Nay-3, Aye-2) to deny the petition renewal. It was denied based on:
  1. Cornerstone does not enroll a commensurate percentage of Hispanic/Latino students in comparison with FMSD.
  2. Cornerstone does not currently and has never enrolled a student with moderate/severe disabilities. 
  3. The Smarter Balanced Assessment scores in Mathematics for students with disabilities has created an achievement gap over the last three years. 
Please see the attached resolution which was approved by the Board of Education on October 22, 2019 and provides further details on denial of charter petition.
