Dear Ocram: You are absolutely correct. The process does not require much of anything. In fact, anyone can go through this process and get approved for a Charter School. All one has to do is take a couple of classes, hire consultants, get money, and we could potentially have two Charter High Schools on Marco Island. To the frustration of the School Board, it is the process that is flawed. This Charter High School has no business even being at this stage of infancy, according to many of the members of the Board. They had "no choice" according to State Regulations, when it came to granting the Application. The Charter itself has a lot more requirements that must be fulfilled.There is a requirement for "Local Support" which will come into play more when they try to have the Charter actually granted, which, as you say, is a real joke as far as the importance and relevance are concerned.Ed Issler
