f)         In the event of default that is not cured within 90 calendar days, the State Superintendent or his or her designee shall take the action specified either in subsection (f)(1) or (f)(2).  The recipient shall be ineligible for additional loans until good standing has been restored.

 

1)         In the event of default that is not cured within 90 calendar days, the State Superintendent or his or her designee shall notify the recipient in writing by certified mail, return receipt requested, that payment of the outstanding loans on the date of the notification is due immediately.  The recipient shall have 30 days from the date the notification is received to submit its payment. 

 

2)         The State Board may deduct amounts necessary to repay the loan from funds due to the recipient or may require that the local school board that authorized the charter school deduct those amounts from funds due to the recipient and remit these amounts to the State Board, provided that the local school board shall not be responsible for repayment of the loan.
