After initially stating they'd be opening school on Monday, the organizers of Imagine Charter School @ Firestone have decided to delaying opening one year. On Wednesday night, the St. Vrain Valley School District Board of Education voted to approve Imagine's contract, but for a 2008 opening. After the hearing charter school founder declared they'd pursue legal action action against the school district while simultaneously educating students.
Now organizers say they cannot violate the law, nor ask parents to violate the law, by sending their kids to the school on Monday. Instead the school will offer tutoring this school year while preparing for the charter school's opening next fall.
Imagine @ Firestone had two successful appeals to the State Board of Education this year. At the second hearing, the Board voted 5-1 to order the St. Vrain Valley School District to open the charter school.
