A Thursday vote on whether Munoz-Marin Elementary School will be converted to a charter school has been delayed, a school district spokesman said Monday.
Spokesman Fernando Gallard said the new date will be chosen after conversations with the community and the principal. He said the change was prompted after several parents contacted the district to ask officials for more time to make a decision on whether to keep Munoz-Marin district-managed or turned over to Aspira of Pennsylvania.
As of right now, parents at Steel Elementary will still vote on Thursday. Mastery Charter Schools is vying to run Steel.
The district announced the selection of Steel and Munoz-Marin on April 1, giving parents a month to hear an explanation from the district and presentations from the charter management organization and the school's current leadership.
The School Reform Commission is expected to take a final vote on May 29.
