Board poised to deny MacDill charter school


TAMPA — The Hillsborough County School Board Tuesday is poised to deny the application for a charter school that would be located on MacDill Air Force Base.

Citing concerns with how the K-8 school would be governed, district officials decided to recommend that the board deny the application for MacDill Charter Academy after a meeting with charter school officials Monday. According to a report by district staff, the 475-page application lacks specific examples for how it would address the needs of military families.

The board meets at 9 a.m. in the Raymond O. Shelton School Administrative Center, 901 E. Kennedy Blvd.
