FAIRBANKS (AP) -- The application for the Alaska Virtual Charter School with the Fairbanks School District has been withdrawn.
The group applied in February for a charter to open a statewide cyberschool but missed a Dec. 31 deadline for new statewide correspondence programs.
Gregg Vanourek, a founding team member, said the group might be back next year with a revised application. He said when it became clear that it was not likely to happen this year, they decided to regroup with an eye toward making it work in the future.
The group had planned to contract with national company K12 to provide curriculum and student records services.
Founding team member Terje Hanson, a local home-schooling parent, said she will be working with other team members on revising the application, and hopes to resubmit it if the district is amenable to a statewide correspondence program.
