Entrepreneur High is getting another hearing

dhinshaw@charlotteobserver.com

The story of Entrepreneur High isn’t over yet.

The charter school that shut down earlier this year with only $14 in the bank will get a hearing before a working group of the state Board of Education on Tuesday to determine whether they’ll get a shot at restarting.

The school’s board chairman, Robert Hillman, has been trying to convince the state to allow the school to open once again under contract with management company Lighthouse Academies. The Board of Education has already voted to terminate Entrepreneur High’s charter, but Hillman exercised the school’s right to appeal.

The whole situation is tenuous at best. Lighthouse is requiring a lot of things to change and a lot of money to be raised before it gets involved.

The hearing is at 1 p.m. Tuesday.

A discussion of what to do with Entrepreneur High is already on the agenda for a state Board of Education committee on Wednesday, with a final vote Thursday.
