The Mansfield City Schools Board of Education has placed three conversion schools on probation. The board voted four to one on the decision at their meeting Tuesday night.

The board voted unanimously to monitor the Mansfield Elective Academy, the Interactive Media and Construction Academy and the Mansfield Enhancement Academy (STAR). Board member Renda Cline did not vote on the matter for personnel reasons.

 The schools are being cited for failure to meet student performance requirements and failure to meet generally accepted standards for fiscal management according to the school board.

"We're going to set up some bench marks for the schools and monitor those throughout the year," Supt. Brian Garverick said.

"We noticed there is some deficit spending and we want to monitor it as we go," Garverick said.

Garverick said the three schools, are governed by a separate board and are funded by the Mansfield City Schools. They are located at the Ocie Hill Neighborhood Center, at 445 Bowman Street.

Garverick said the decision will not affect the classes at the school.

The Mansfield Elective Academy serves at-risk students in grades kindergarten through eighth.

The Interactive Media and Construction Academy (IMAC) serves high school students develop career building skills. Students receive training in interactive media and technical skills in construction.

The Mansfield Enhancement Academy (STAR), serves students ages 17-21 who have dropped out of high school or at-risk of dropping out. The students are offered 14 training programs which help them earn a diploma.
