Mark Hyatt, president of The Classical Academy in Academy School District 20 for the past seven years, is leaving for another job. But he won't be losing touch with the world of charter schools.
Instead, Hyatt will become the new executive director of the state's Charter School Institute, which certifies 19 charter schools across the state, including a handful in Colorado Springs. He'll continue at TCA through January before moving to his new position.
He'll inherit a controversy, because CSU probably has not finished dealing with the Pueblo-based Cesar Chavez School Network. After many revelations of problems, one state-mandated audit already has uncovered cheating in the administering of tests at a Chavez school, with another audit focusing on finances coming soon.
