$69,000 goes to ed department
DALLAS -- The State Department of Education now has $69,000 from the closing balances of Morrison Charter School in Dallas.
The school's program ended its status as a charter school and is now re-incorporated into the Dallas School District as Morrison Alternative High School.
As one person at the State Department commented, "We're not used to seeing funds left over when a charter school closes."
Bret West, Chief Operations Officer for Finance and Administration at the Department of Education says, "We've received two checks from Morrison so far."
Board Chair Don Currey and Executive Director Don Wildfang are responsible for completing the Morrison closure. They have been directed to turn over records of all expenditures for twice-monthly reviews through the closing process. Information for the first mid-month review is now with West.
