Included here are links to two article of interest to those in the GCAA community: 1. Missouri’s Senate Bill 638 would allow students from unaccredited districts to transfer to approved charter schools. Grand Center Arts Academy meets the requirements of an approved charter school, so it’s possible that families from Normandy and Riverview Gardens, the only unaccredited districts in the area, might be eligible to enroll at GCAA. The article is a Q-and-A format that explains what we know right now. 2. Announcement of the board’s decision to search for a permanent chief executive officer. Dr. Peter Kachris will remain with Confluence as interim CEO until the position is filled. A search committee will be formed as part of the process to find a CEO.
