There would be a very negative impact on Lely High School if the Marco Island Academy (MIA) drew nearly a quarter of the students away from it. Schools receive financing based on a head count. A certain amount is allocated per student and it becomes the budget for the school. That would be devastating to Lely and it would be completely understandable if the School Board saw this MIA as too detrimental to approve.
If it is a great education the MIA parents seek with the academic rigor they propose then establish the academy within Lely High School to compliment the already outstanding programs offered there.
That might actually have a chance at success and would be an efficient and cost effective solution.
