Group questions Lafayette charter application

Posted: Updated:

LAFAYETTE, La. (AP) - A Lafayette Parish parent organization fighting two pending charter school applications is questioning why one charter school failed to disclose management problems raised in audits of two schools it operates in New York.

The New York State Comptroller Office's audits of Buffalo United School and Brooklyn Excelsior Charter School reveal a lease payment of $800,000 over fair market value at one school and call for better oversight of public funds.

Ann Burruss, a Lafayette Parish parent, tells The Advocate the issues should have been disclosed by National Heritage Academies in its charter school application to the Louisiana Department of Education.

On Tuesday, a Board of Elementary and Secondary Education committee will consider an application from Louisiana Achievement Charter Academies made in partnership with NHA to open two schools in Lafayette Parish.
