Charter Schools

Daleville Community Schools is the authorizer of two virtual charter schools: Indiana Virtual School (2011) and Indiana Virtual Pathways Academy (2017).  In February of 2019, DCS began the process to revoke the charters for both schools because clear and egregious violations of the charters had been uncovered.  In July of 2019 the Indiana State Board of Accounts testified that IVS and IVPA had substantially misreported their enrollment data.  The Indiana Department of Education calculate that IVS and IVPA owe at lease $47.3 million dollars back to the state.

On August 26, 2019, the DCS Board will take the final act in the revocation process and vote on the question of revoking the IVS and IVPA charters.  If the Board votes to revoke, the closure dates for both charter schools will likely be September 30, 2019.

History and Timeline of Daleville Community Schools and the Charter Schools

In August of 2018, DCS was asked by the Indiana State Board of Education Committee on Virtual Charter Schools for suggestions for state regulations concerning virtual charter schools.  The document below contains our suggestions for regulations based on our experiences in serving as a virtual charter school authorizer since 2011.  Most of these were not adopted by the Committee nor addressed in any other rule or regulation.
