Legacy Traditional School District, the largest K-8 charter school district in Arizona, has been awarded, a district-wide accreditation. Legacy Traditional joins just 13 other school systems in the state to be fully accredited and became the second K-8 school in San Tan Valley to receive this honor. The decision came following an extensive review process conducted by a five-member external review team from AdvancEd, the world’s largest educational community. During the weeklong review process, the team observed the learning environments at the district’s campuses and collected thousands of documentary records. In addition, the team conducted 169 interviews with founders, board members, administrators, teachers, support staff, students and parents.

Last week, American Leadership Academy was planning to open their new campus in Florence, across from the Florence Hospital at Anthem.  They appeared shocked to learn that the State Charter School Board denied their occupancy request and students were sent scrambling to find somewhere to go to school.

According to the minutes from the July 8th State Charter School Board meeting however, Janna Day made the motion to deny the request to add a new site to the charter contract of American Leadership Academies, Inc. for the reason that the charter holder has not demonstrated the capacity to implement operational systems that comply with statutory and contractual responsibilities regarding attendance reporting at its current sites as evidenced by the information contained in this report. Further, the Board directs staff to monitor the charter holder’s attendance reporting at least through February of the 2013-2014 school year prior to consideration of expansion by this charter for a subsequent school year. The motion was seconded by Stacey Morley and passed unanimously.
