Vice and publicly funded charter schools don’t mix, officials advise. That means what happens in Vegas does not always stay in Vegas. And people shouldn’t be looking for love on a charter school management nonprofit’s website.
A Las Vegas trip was made in 2013 by two employees of the Electronic Classroom of Tomorrow, an e-school with students across the state of Ohio. The staffers were there for a school safety conference, but when the conference ended on a Friday they stayed through the weekend.
Since the hotels and meals were on the school’s credit card, a state audit said the cost of the weekend stay must be repaid. Each employee repaid the $196 in findings in the audit.
More recently, officials from Concept Schools — a charter school management nonprofit that runs the Horizon chain of schools here and across the state — removed a lascivious link from their company’s website when asked about it by the I-Team.
The web page, brought to our attention by a reader, offered to help people “find a new sex partner.”
“We already have 2 million members registered on our website. This is YOUR chance to find a new sex partner easily (as well as discreetly),” it proffered. “Hundreds of people join our website every day, who have the same wish like you do: a sex date!”
Concept schools officials offered this explanation:
“The mentioned link is a result of one of our departmental web sites being affected by some malware/adware. The link has been removed and additional precautions put in place to prevent future attacks. Moreover, we are in the process of screening individual school sites to ensure that they have not been exposed to such malware/adware attacks recently either.”
