Did a charter operator submit an Allentown proposal in York?

I’m sorting through all of the questions that community members asked of the seven charter operators that expressed an interest in taking over one or more York City schools one day.

And it looks like someone was wondering the same thing I was, about the proposal that came from Executive Education Schools.

Did the operator submit its Allentown charter school application after using “find and replace” to change every Allentown reference to York?

Executive Education Schools just opened its first charter school in Allentown. In its York proposal, there are some references to the “York School District” followed by the abbreviation “ASD.” There are references to people from York that are incorrect. (The proposal noted former state Rep. Jennifer Mann being elected to serve her hometown of York, when she was a representative for her hometown of Allentown.)

So, a community member asked Executive Education Schools why they used the same application and just changed the references using Microsoft Word.

“Our model has had proven success in urban areas and various academic settings. We apologize for the oversight on the WORD errors,” the operator responded.

    Rookie error. Epic fail. Should take them out of the running.
