Eastern Univ. Acad. Charter Sch. v. Sch. Dist. of Philadelphia

The Pennsylvania Supreme Court affirmed the order of the Commonwealth Court, which held that Section 1729-A(a) of the Charter School Law does not impose a mandatory deadline by which a school district must decide to renew or not renew a charter. Here, a charter was not renewed. The school appealed, claiming that the district’s failure to issue its nonrenewal decision before the charter’s expiration date invalidated the nonrenewal under Section 1729-A. The Supreme Court disagreed. Relying on statutory construction, the Court found no support for the charter school’s argument.
