Clay County District Schools has terminated its charter with Orange Park Performing Arts Academy (OPPAA) at the direction of the State Board of Education.
Based upon Orange Park Performing Arts Academy’s historical academic performance outlined by the state’s accountability system, the school has been subject to automatic closure under the provisions of Section 1002.33(9)(n)(4), Florida Statutes due to receiving two consecutive “F” school grades. Additionally, Orange Park Performing Arts Academy was denied a waiver to remain open as a charter school under the provisions of the statute.
Clay County District Schools will work closely with families to provide resources that will allow them to identify a new high-quality option for their children. In order to minimize the impact on students, the district will assist families in enrolling their children in their neighborhood schools within Clay County.
“As a District, we stand ready and prepared to offer the best, high quality educational opportunities for students affected by the closure of OPPAA. Clay County Schools will take immediate action to ensure that all families impacted by this closure are provided with thorough guidance to enroll their children at their neighborhood schools. We are excited about engaging this cohort of learners and educating their families about Clay County’s endless educational possibilities,” said Superintendent Addison Davis.
Parents or guardians who have questions pertaining to their child’s neighborhood school should contact the district office at 904-336-6500.
