CONFIRMED: Great Hearts Appeals Charter Rejection to the State
As per the Tennessean story and my blog post from yesterday, Great Hearts Academies has officially appealed the rejection of its charter application by MNPS to the Tennessee State Board of Education. Confirmation came by way of the State Board’s General Counsel, Dannelle Walker:
Under the statute, Great Hearts had 10 days from the final rejection by MNPS of its application to appeal to the state. Yesterday was the 10th day, and so Great Hearts came in just under the wire.
