Vineland charter school director could lose professional certificates

    Anna Garcia has until winter to show cause for keeping her professional certificates. The Vineland Public Charter School executive director will be issued an order after state Department of Education’s Board of Examiners holds its November meeting.

    Garcia currently holds 2.7 full-time positions at schools, which is unusual but not illegal. The the Office of Fiscal Accountability and Compliance, however, has determined Garcia persuaded the current and former Vineland Public Charter School business administrators to witness incomplete signature pages for her contracts when it questioned whether her position at the Vineland school is full-time.

    She also holds positions at the Winslow Township School District, Charter-Tech High School for the Performing Arts in Somers Point and Environment Community Opportunity Charter School in Camden, as the Daily Journal reports, earning her about $300,000.

    Garcia will have 30 days after the order to show cause.
