CUSD 200 asks for families' help in rejecting virtual charter school proposal
WHEATON – In a letter to Community Unit School District 200 families, Superintendent Brian Harris has asked for their help in upholding the school board's decision to reject a proposed online charter school that would serve students in the district.
The proposal for the online charter school from Virtual Learning Solutions was rejected this month by 18 area school districts.
According to CUSD 200's letter, the district's Board of Education rejected the proposal for various reasons including questions about the rigor of the academic program, student results on achievement exams and lack of compliance with laws governing charter schools. However, Virtual Learning Solutions is seeking to appeal local school boards' decisions to the Illinois Charter School Commission based on the traditional educational system's ability to embrace alternative forms of education, according to CUSD 200.
