Charter revoked because D-11 wasn’t told about application

July 6, 2005
An online charter school approved by the state Charter School Institute this spring won’t be opening this fall after all. The Colorado Distance and Electronic Learning Academy didn’t provide the required notification to Colorado Springs School District 11 that it was applying to be a charter school.
Offices for the proposed online charter school would have been located in D-11. Randy DeHoff, executive director of the Charter School Institute, said the institute approved the online school’s charter March 21 but learned afterward that notification wasn’t sent to D-11. The notification is required by law and by institute policies, DeHoff said. In a hearing April 7, institute board members revoked their approval of the Colorado Distance and Electronic Learning Academy’s application and said it could apply again. D-11 was recently granted exclusive chartering authority, meaning charter schools planning to locate in the district now must apply directly to the district, not the Charter School Institute. Peter Droege, board president of the Colorado Distance and Electronic Learning Academy, said school officials plan to apply again.
