Other the school board business
Voted to approve the “school improvement plans” to correct three struggling charter schools that received D or F grades last school year.
The three schools put on improvement plans were the Charter School of Boynton Beach, Joseph Littles-Nguzo Saba Charter School in West Palm Beach and Leadership Academy West in West Palm Beach.
Earlier this year, district officials had proposed closing Leadership West down, but the school board denied that proposal.
