Approve Non-Renewal of Contract with King’s Kids Academy of Health Sciences
King’s Kids Academy of Health Sciences opened in August 2012.  The school serves grades Kindergarten through 5th grade.  They are located at 3000 N. 34th Street in Tampa. 

Florida Statute 1002.33(9)(n)4 states, “A charter school’s charter contract is automatically terminated if the school earns two consecutive grades of “F” … unless: …(c) The state board grants the charter school a waiver of termination…” 

The school received a grade of “F” during the 2015-2016 school year and were required to submit a school improvement plan to raise student performance.  They were also required to present information on their noted deficiencies to the Hillsborough County School Board as required in FS 1002.33(n).  This presentation took place on November 10, 2016.  When school grades were received for the 2016-2017 school year, King’s Kids Academy of Health Sciences received a grade of “F” and therefore by statute we are required to terminate their contract.
All Strategic Objectives
There will be no evaluation since this contract is being terminated.
