State gives Fulton Science Academy High a second chance to save its charter

The State Board of Education gave Fulton Science Academy High School a second chance to save its charter, overriding a recommendation from the Fulton County School Board that the charter of the school be terminated.

School attorney, Rocco Testani, argued there were a lot of unsubstantial allegations in the district’s report on the school’s alleged failings, in particular that the school forced graduating seniors to pay money to take required courses online. The district’s report on the school that prompted the hearing “is inaccurate in many respects and incomplete in others,” Testani said. “We need to take a deep breath and dial down the hyperbole.”
