The corrective action plan requested of A.A. Dixon Charter School has been submitted to the Escambia County School Board.
Some aspects of the plan seem to have merit, while some parts seem optimistic at best, unrealistic at worst.
Members of the school board have also been given a copy of the less than stellar review of A.A. Dixon submitted by the DOE after a recent site visit by personnel from Tallahassee.
On a brighter note, many of the debts carried over from last fiscal year by A.A. Dixon have been forgiven--but the list of what was forgiven leads to more questions.
What was LuTimothy May invoicing A.A. Dixon Charter School $6,000.00 dollars for in the first place?
Why was Friendship Missionary Baptist Church invoicing A.A. Dixon over $2,000.00 for?
Many other questions come to mind, including the proposed new contract signed by A.A. Dixon agreeing to pay 11% of their FEFP revenue to an out of state education contractor--can A.A. dixon really afford to do this?
The district staff will be addressing their concerns this Friday at the regular monthly School Board workshop, at which time individual board members will have the ability to ask questions and seek answers from those who are running A.A. Dixon.
It should be interesting.
