State commission upholds Sumner’s charter school denial

Sumner County Schools Chief Academic Officer Scott Langford urged the state’s Public Charter School Commission to uphold the school district’s denial of its first charter school application on Monday, Oct. 17.

The Tennessee Public Charter School Commission voted unanimously on Monday to uphold Sumner County Schools’ denial of the district’s first, and so far only, charter school application.

Del Rey Education, Inc., submitted an application in January for Founders Classical Academy of Hendersonville, a charter school that would open in the fall of 2024 for grades K-8, and eventually serve students through the 12th grade.
