At the School Reform Commission’s monthly action meeting, the SRC unanimously reaffirmed their non-renewals for two charters: Community Academy of Philadelphia Charter School and Truebright Science Academy Charter School. The commision rejected a resolution for the District to sell artwork that has been in storage for as long as a decade. Instead commissioners asked District staff to develop a plan for restoring the works of the art to the schools where they were originally housed.
The meeting began at 5:30 p.m.
