For Carondelet Leadership Academy Students, Families, & Employees
The Carondelet Leadership Academy is remaining open.
After Missouri Baptist University gave up its sponsorship of the charter schools in St. Louis, the State Board of Education transferred sponsorship for the Carondelet Leadership Academy to the University of Missouri-Columbia (MU) College of Education. MU’s College of Education sponsors two other charter schools in the St. Louis area, as well as two in the Kansas City area.
This sponsorship change will have no effect on Carondelet’s operations and staff through the rest of the current school year. Dr. Deborah Carr, Director of Charter School Operations at the MU College of Education, will work with the Carondelet Leadership Academy’s Board of Directors and administration during this transition period and in planning for the 2012-2013 school year. A letter from Dr. Carr and her staff will be sent to all parents/guardians and staff with more detailed information. If you do not receive this letter by the end of April, please contact the Charter Transition Office.
DESE has established the Charter Transition Office in St. Louis to provide information about this transition. The Charter Transition Office has the following resources and contact points currently available:
