The mission of Lake Wales Charter School is to bring the best of public education to our community by providing innovation and choice within a continuous preschool through postsecondary curriculum so that each child recognizes the benefits of life-long learning, constructive citizenship and personal happiness.
The Board of Trustees met Wednesday (9/8) and approved two important, and what have come to be controversial pieces of business concerning the search for a new superintendent. The first was the approval of a one-page summary of the "forum meetings" that were held for students, Charter School employees and community members. It seems that the content of this summary is in question by those who attended these meetings, and not representative of what they felt was shared and offered by the participants. The second was a decision to temporarily pause the national search for a superintendent in favor of a more local approach. If a qualified local candidate was not found within a few weeks, then the national search would continue. This decision has proven to be a divisive proposal.
Our board-approved procedures state that your student may continue to attend school during the quarantine period, as long as they do not develop symptoms, but will be required to wear a mask for 10 days following their most recent exposure. You may also choose to keep your child at home for the quarantine period to monitor for symptoms and work will be provided to your student.
