Some of the schools are thriving academically, despite demographic challenges. But others aren’t, according to numbers presented to the Idaho Public Charter School Commission meeting Thursday.
The new schools will provide some 1,400 new seats for students in the coming years, charter support group Bluum says.
Some questionable transactions at Monticello Montessori Charter School include the purchase of Turkish lira and various payments to Netflix.
The FDR Group said Idaho charter schools’ response to the pandemic earned them a “reservoir of trust” with parents and teachers.
