Tri-Community is giving up its charter

It looks like the end may be near for the Tri-Community Public Charter School.
During a performance review of Tri-Community, D.C. Public Charter School Board analysts discovered serious shortcomings in the school’s leadership structure, financial management and enrollment patterns. As a result, the board put the charter on warning status,giving the leadership a year to address the problems.

According to board spokeswoman Nona Richardson,school leaders surrendered their management of the school last week.

Projected to have 200 students, Tri-Community has only about 130 enrolled. Leaders also have yet to substantiate claims of rising test scores, according to charter board documents.
