Einstein Academy plans to ask for 30-day delay in charter decision

Officials from the Albert Einstein Academy for Letters, Arts and Sciences plan to ask the Los Angeles County Board of Education to delay its decision in Einstein’s latest attempt to gain approval for an elementary school charter in Santa Clarita, according to a statement released on the academy’s website.

Einstein Academy officials will ask the board for a 30-day continuance on the matter.

“With the success of (Albert Einstein Academy) in opening campuses outside of Los Angeles County, all parties would like to make sure the governance of the Santa Clarita elementary school complies with county and state regulations,” the statement reads.

“Many people have put in countless hours thus far, and based on thoughtful recommendations, AEA has agreed to continue the vote 30 days to allow for the success of our school.”

Einstein Academy officials are appealing an October decision by the Saugus Union School District to deny an elementary school charter for the academy. Einstein Academy is already chartered to provide education for middle and high school students in the William S. Hart Union High School District.

This would be the second continuance request in two weeks for the Einstein Academy. Academy officials asked for a one-week delay in the decision at the board’s meeting on Feb. 5.

The Board of Education was set to rule on Einstein’s appeal this afternoon. Board staff members have recommended the board deny the appeal.
