Corbett School District ( CSD ) & Corbett Charter School
Corbett Schools have been in the news! We opened the first Charter school based on Imaginative Education in 2009 and our national ranking seems to always be the buzz on real estate listings for our area. Our district recently denied the lease agreement for the Corbett Charter School next year… and then went into mediation and returned on April 17, 2014 to announce new terms to a new five year agreement. Read here.
Our current population numbers include over half of the students coming in from outside of Corbett. We open enrolled 476 students in 2014 after denying the Charter space. Even without the Charter School the plans are not to shrink but to add a new “STEM SCHOOL” (Focus on Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) to help displace the numbers in the same way that the Charter did so that we can continue to receive small school funding.
Our main campus was out of compliance in each building ( based on conditional use permits between 2009 and 2013 ) and the Charter School was never legally established with the County. Our school district failed at passing a $15 million dollar bond last fall but appears to be gearing up for another stab at it in May 2014.
