Greenbelt, MD asked in Education Law for Georgia

Q: How do we stop a former private school officer of a closed school from obstructing the closure of the school?

This former president and principal signed the Board resolution to close the school through the assignment process yet continues to obstruct the closure. She ignored a cease and desist letter and operates a new school using platforms and health insurance setup under the closed school’s EIN. The Board terminated her but the service providers will not close the accounts unless she gives approval as she is the primary agent on the bank and other accounts. She removed the Board Treasurer’s access to all accounts. She is even collecting “tuition” from parents who have notified the Board that they didn’t authorize such auto withdrawals. In addition, she didn’t provide all families with final transcripts and one transfer school has asked the Board to assist so the student can start their new school. However, the Board cannot access the data on the records platform. What can the Board do to stop her obstruction of the school’s closing and wrongful use of school insurance and platforms?

A: The Board can, and should, remove her, elect a new president, and pass new Board banking resolutions regarding who can access the school’s bank accounts.
