RMAE appoints new board in wake of faculty firings

Rocky Mountain Academy of Evergreen now has six new school board members in the first step toward dealing with problems plaguing the charter school. Those difficulties came to a head in the last two weeks as seven board members resigned, the school’s executive director fired six faculty members, and parents and students protested the firings in front of the school.

Kyle Stults, the sole remaining member of the board, convened a meeting Monday night at which he appointed six parent representatives to the board, and they elected officers.
