Court Rules in Favor of Charter Schools on Chester Upland Funding Plan

Latsha Davis & McKenna, P.C. is pleased to announce an important victory on behalf of charter schools and cyber charter schools. On August 25, 2015, the Delaware County Court of Common Pleas entered an Opinion and Order in In Re: Appointment of a Receiver for the Chester Upland School District that prevents the Pennsylvania Department of Education and the Chester Upland School District from implementing portions of a proposed Amended Financial Recovery Plan aimed at decreasing charter school and cyber charter school subsidies. After a two-day hearing in which our office participated on behalf of several charter schools and cyber charter schools, the court disapproved the arbitrary and capricious proposed reduction in cyber charter school tuition rates and held the initiative on special education funding to be wholly inadequate.

Potentially the decision of the DCC Pleas may not bring finality to the issue and therefore if you would like to discuss how this decision may impact your school, please do not hesitate to contact us at [email protected].
