Epic Charter Schools begins a new semester for One-on-One Charter Schools and Blended Learning Schools. 

It is the first semester since the board made the decision to part ways with its co-founders and its management company, Epic Youth Services. 

The decision followed a state audit of the Charter Schools' finances. 

The district said the management company will pay the school's administrative cost penalties for the past two fiscal years and any money Epic believes it owes the State Department of Education. 

The deputy superintendent believes Epic will save around 40 million dollars. It is money she said will be invested in students and new technology. 

The district also released its return to learn plan. It includes all precautionary measures surrounding COVID-19. 

Masks are strongly recommended in office buildings and in person learning centers, but they are not required. 

If there is a covid exposure, any unvaccinated student or staff member will be required to quarantine 14 days. 

Those who are vaccinated do not have to quarantine, unless symptoms develop.
