Charter group out amid scandal

BATON ROUGE- A national charter school organization won't be in charge of Dalton Elementary when the school opens this fall.

The group, FUSE, gave up the charter amid a scandal at its home office on the East Coast recently. The CEO resigned after it was unveiled he did not have a Ph.D. but was referred to as "doctor" and that he had served prison time for federal embezzlement charges.

In Connecticut, FUSE has been removed from operating schools because of the issues with its former CEO. With the loss of Dalton, FUSE no longer operates schools, media outlets in Connecticut reported.

California-based operator Celerity will run Dalton when it opens in August.

The Recovery School District is in charge of Dalton.
