Idaho’s governor on Wednesday selected Bill Gilbert to join the board, which has wide-ranging authority over K-12 and higher education policy. The Boise businessman headed Little’s K-12 task force in 2019.
The building was unoccupied when the fire started, and the Boise Fire Department is on scene. No major injuries have been reported.
Ken Glodo gave no reason for the decision, which accompanies a months-long probe into his charter school’s finances by the Idaho Public Charter School Commission.
A probe of the school’s finances has revealed dozens of unexplained purchases.
