The NOLA Public Schools district informed Mary D. Coghill Charter School staff this week that the school remains under scrutiny over its special education services.


The NOLA Public Schools district informed Mary D. Coghill Charter School staff this week that the school remains under scrutiny over its special education services. Since August, the school has been under a so-called “level 2 warning,” which, short of revoking a charter is the most serious citation the district gives out. The new letter extends the warning period into next month. 

District Chief Portfolio Innovation and Accountability Officer Kelli Peterson said improvements have been made, but the school needs to work on making up special education services for students who had previously missed them, according to her Nov. 18 letter

The letter, sent to Coghill Head of School Rayven Calloway and the charter group’s board president Audrey Woods, also instructed the school to submit a series of documents by Friday.
