Newpoint: North Carolina Asking Questions about Newpoint Issues Here Prior to Newpoint Schools opening There.....
...Apparently there are several pending applications by Newpoint for schools in North Carolina.
An administrator with the North Carolina Department of Public Instruction has requested the electronically available public records pertaining to Escambia County's investigation into our Newpoint schools here locally. What was requested by this NC official, and what was provided yesterday, were the following:
1. The redacted electronic copy of my initial package of information from a whistle-blower.
2. A redacted copy of Tab "5" from the district's binder.
These officials are paying close attention to the media surrounding Newpoint schools both here and in Panama City.
Will the issues here lead to charter application denials in North Carolina??
We shall see.
