State To Take Over As Sponsor Of Two Reynoldsburg Charter Schools
Two local charter schools originally overseen by Reynoldsburg schools will come under the sponsorship of the state of Ohio.
On Tuesday, the state Board of Education voted at its regular meeting to approve a hearing officer’s recommendation that the Virtual Community School and A+ Arts Academy should be sponsored next school year by the Office of School Sponsorship, part of the Ohio Department of Education.
The Reynoldsburg school district lost its sponsorship authority after it was rated a “poor” sponsor by the state in the fall. A sponsor is an overseer that helps its schools with legal compliance and technical assistance. By law, every charter school must have a sponsor to operate.
