All of the blogs have been talking about school closures for the past couple of weeks. There are opinions, theories, conspiracies, options off the table, and options on the table. While I have attended meetings and read the reports I am not sure this blog has much to add to that process. However, while discussing school closures there has been a great deal of discussion about school choice. Back in August I posted about Flex Academy Public High School. Flex is a charter high school and had applied for a charter from MDUSD, only to be turned down. In October however, the Contra Costa County Board of Education approved the charter. Flex Academy now plans to open a high school in the MDUSD attendance area next fall that provides parents with students in grades 9-12, living in the county or surrounding counties, a choice for high school.
