Shakeup At Troubled Charter School
(Las Vegas, NV) — Allegations of mismanagement have prompted a shakeup at a troubled Las Vegas charter school.
The state Public Charter School Authority says a investigation has substantiated allegations of collusion, contract tampering, improper payment of bonuses and more.
The “Review-Journal” says the president of Quest Academy, Christina Fuentes, has resigned, and board members have ordered principal Connie Jordan to pay back $15,000 in bonuses.
Officials say that’s not enough to restore confidence in Quest.
The state Public Charter School Authority has given Quest two weeks to outline further changes, such as replacing some board members and school administrators.
