Charter School Cancels Scheduled Meeting

By  | 

The board of directors of a College Station charter school at the center of a TEA investigation has canceled a scheduled meeting Thursday night.

The board of the Brazos School for Inquiry and Creativity was scheduled to meet Thursday evening at 6 p.m.; however, that meeting has been canceled.

It's not clear why.

The board hasn't had much to say about recent findings by TEA that there has been financial mismanagement of public funds meant for school business.

In a final TEA report, released Wednesday, the state ordered school officials to re-pay more than a quarter million dollars it says was misused.

The TEA found the charter school overpaid its superintendent and board president more than 250 thousand dollars from 2002 to 2004.

The report also states trips, meals, gasoline, and cell phones not related to school activity were paid for with public funds.
