9 NC charter school bids approved for next step

Friday, January 13th, 2012

RALEIGH, NC (AP) — Nine proposed charter schools have gotten the approval of a North Carolina state panel reviewing whether they would be ready to operate this fall.

The North Carolina Public Charter School Advisory Council decided this week it will recommend nine applicants seeking fast-track approval to open in the next school year. The State Board of Education will discuss the applications next month and act on them in March.

The state Department of Public Instruction had received 27 fast-track applications.

More charter schools are expected after the Legislature removed last year a statewide limit of 100 such alternative public schools.

Warren gets restraining order to stop removal hearing

Friday, January 13th, 2012

BRUNSWICK COUNTY, NC (WWAY) — A judge has postponed a Brunswick County Commission hearing scheduled for Tuesday to see if there’s cause to remove Commissioner Charles Warren from the DSS Board.

Warren filed the request yesterday asking for the delay. In the motion, Warren alleged that DSS Board member Pat Sykes and Brunswick County resident Jenny Quaglia have on multiple occasions disrupted DSS Board meetings. Warren alleges Quaglia’s disruptions are because of “her political opposition” to him.


The filing also accuses Sykes, Quaglia and Brunswick Beacon reporter Carolina Curran of “being opposed to Charles Warren and have sought or desired his removal from his positions with Brunswick County government for political reasons.”

The motion also gives Warren’s version of what happened at the December 13 DSS Board meeting, where Warren threw out Sykes and Curran for being disruptive. It also says that on December 19 the County Commission “voted to hold an illegal and improper hearing to determine if (Warren) should be removed from his appointed position as Member of the DSS Board due to his removal of Sykes and Curran from the… DSS Board meeting.”

Warren has declined to comment on the injunction. Instead he referred questions to his lawyer.

We will have much more on this story tonight on WWAY NewsChannel 3 starting at 5 p.m.
