Background: Milwaukee Community Cyber High School (MC2) was established as a non-instrumentality charter school beginning with the 2010-2011 school year. During each renewal cycle since, the Board has approved a five-year renewed contract. The current contract is for up to a maximum of 300 full-time-equivalent (FTE) pupils in grades 9 through 12. MC2 is located at 131 South First Street.

On March 24, 2020, the Department of Contracted School Services received written communication from Seeds of Health representatives notifying MPS of Seeds of Health’s request for non-renewal of the non-instrumentality charter school contract to be effective on the last regularly scheduled day of the 2020-2021 school year.
Fiscal Impact Statement: This item does not authorize expenditures.
Implementation and Assessment Plan Administration will work with Seeds of Health and MC2 to ensure a strong finish to the school year. Administration will also assist families in finding new school placements for fall as needed.

The non-instrumentality charter school contract with Seeds of Health, Inc. for Milwaukee Community Cyber High School (MC2) will expire effective on the last regularly scheduled day of the 2019-2020 school year.

Administration will notify Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction of the non-renewal of the non-instrumentality charter school contract.
Recommendation: Administration recommends that the Board approve the request to end the educational program of the non-instrumentality charter school contract with Seeds of Health, Inc. for Milwaukee Community Cyber High School (MC2), as requested, to be effective on the last regularly scheduled day of the 2019-2020 School Year.
