Fact, Clay County consistently has one of the top school districts in the county.
Fact, they just announced they will be cutting up to 80 positions. due to declining enrollment (don’t worry Clay, if the state passes the crazy you can go to school anywhere law, your numbers will be booming as families flee Jacksonville.)
Great schools, declining enrollment and now they are adding a for profit charter school too.
From the Times Union: Renaissance also is building a similar school in Middleburg, called the
Clay Charter Academy, near Pine Ridge Parkway and Buggy Whip Trail. That will
be Clay County’s first charter school.
The school will be run by Charter Schools USA and make no mistake they are doing it for one reason and that’s to make a profit. How does this make sense, they can’t currently support what they have now.
I think Van Zant has been a disaster and I guess this just seals the deal.
