President of the entity that operates a charter school in Bayamon questions the order to close it: “The decision was based on wrong premises”

The president of the Changing the Equation Coalition, Edjoel Aragones Calderonrejected this Tuesday the accusations of alleged failures to resolve the failures that the Education deparment identified, since last year, in the operations of the Academy of Sciences and Technology, a charter schoolin Bayamonwhich will close at the end of the school year.

The economic problems that the charter school has faced are due to Education’s delays in disbursing the budget that the school has been assigned, argued Aragones Calderon; and, contrary to what was expressed by an agency official, he assured that he did take action to address the results of a monitoring carried out in April 2023.

“They provide incorrect information, which does not allow us to deliver for the school community we are serving.”said Aragones Calderon, in a telephone interview with The new day.

Education imposed a receivership on the school last week, through which the agency will be in charge of the campus until the end of the school year. With this, he completely leaves out the directors of the non-profit organization that has operated the school since 2021. The director of the Alianza Public Schools Office, Sol Ortiz Brunoexplained on Monday, in an interview with this medium, that the determination was made due to fiscal, programmatic and administrative failures of the school, which were not addressed.
