UPDATE: The Menta Education Group wins TRO against the Illinois State Board of Education
Original Statement, October 18, 2023
To our cherished students, parents, and school districts,
Our dedication to the unique needs of our students spans over fifty years, and we continue to prioritize the well-being and education of every student in our care, especially in Centralia, La Salle, and Springfield. It’s disheartening to see the recent actions and claims by ISBE, challenging the approval of our three new programs.
Despite initial approvals by ISBE, they’ve unjustly shifted their stance due to internal oversights. We assure you we’ve met every requirement for program approvals and received explicit confirmation to this effect. We are actively taking steps, including filing an injunction and a temporary restraining order against ISBE, to protect our reputation, our students, and their families.
