Neville Charter Board moves forward with complaint to State

Posted: Updated:

MONROE, La. (KNOE 8 News) - The Neville Charter Board has decided to move forward to make Neville High School a type-2 charter school.

After teachers voted against the charter school proposal last week, the Charter Board has decided to take action and file a formal complaint to the state superintendent.

"To file a complaint about the interference we feel happened at the teacher vote," says Ronnie Shelby with the Charter Board.

The charter supporters believe it's unfair that last week's vote on the charter school was taken directly after the school board spoke about the disadvantages of a charter.

Ronnie Shelby says the charter supporters weren't given the chance to counter what the school board told teachers.

"We feel like the false information given to teachers caused some confusion," says Shelby, "that not otherwise would have been warranted."

Thursday, the charter board voted unanimously to file the complaint with the state.

"We could step back and just wait until next, or we could just fold up our tent and go home, another consensus of the group...We aren't going to give up," says Shelby.

Shelby says the group will continue their efforts and the complaint will be filed in the next week.

The group's next meeting is set for February 21, at 6:00 pm.
