Action and inaction create consequence. The Department of Education did not take lightly the failure of St. Louis Christian College to establish required standards and codes. Were you a student at SLCC at the time? Did you notice the violations? Do you have an update? I continue to ask.
From the book:
“Six years have passed since the height of the storm at FCCF. Here are significant events that have taken place since.
• The Department of Education notified St. Louis Christian College of the negative findings of a program review report issued by the US Department of Education’s School Participation Division in Kansas City, which was dated April 8, 2015. This is, interestingly enough, the same date that FCCF’s elders, including Steve Wingfield, held their raucous meeting with church adult class teachers and recovery ministry leaders. Yes, the one that gave me flashbacks. According to this letter, SLCC was in trouble as far back as 2013, as the date on the findings report is November 4, 2013.
‘Final determinations have been made concerning all of the outstanding findings of the program review report. The purpose of this letter is to notify SLC of the Department’s final determinations and to notify SLC of a possible adverse action. Due to the serious nature of Findings 1, 2 and 3, this FPRD is being referred to the Department’s Administrative Actions and Appeals Service Group (AAASG) for its consideration of possible adverse administrative action pursuant to 34 C.F.R. (Section) 668, Subpart G. Such action may include a fine, or the limitation, suspension or termination of the eligibility of the institution.’
• The Department of Education levied a huge fine on SLCC for failing to comply with federal standards. SLCC received a detailed explanation dated June 13, 2017. I am not aware of what the college sent to the DOE in response to these notices.
‘The fine of $45,000 will be imposed on July 3, 2017, unless I receive, by that date, a request for a hearing or written material indicating why the fine should not be imposed. SLC may submit both a written request for a hearing and written material indicating why a fine should not be imposed.'” (Taylor, Joy S., A View from the Pews — The Inside Story of a Broken Church, 2022, Lily of the Valley Publishing, Santa Claus IN, pp. 167,169.)
