Good News - School will be open tomorrow. We will look forward to seeing you all there! We have spoken with TN State Board of Cosmetology and they are fully aware of the business license not being in the name "The Center for Cosmetology Education." They understand the unfortunate situation that we have all been through over the past week. They told us to open back up and get you guys back in school regardless and that there is no law on the books that says the Cosmetology School name and the Business License name have to match. So we are in good standing with all departments and we will be back open for business tomorrow. We will be available until 1 pm to answer any questions you may have. We will look forward to seeing you then.

The plan as of right now is that the school will reopen on Thursday. The State of TN is waiting on the Ryall's to get into town. Due to the situations stemming from Southern Institute's past they are being required to appear in person at the state office before we can reopen. We have renewed the business license of Plaza Beauty School at this point as directed by the State of TN so that we can get you back into school sooner than waiting on Southern Institute's license to be filed for. We will be available Thursday to answer all of your questions.

12/14/2015

Students – We know everyone is ready for an update as to what is going on. Here is what we know – Plaza’s CPA has been working with the State of Tennessee office to clear up any discrepancies. This is no longer any issue. The unfortunate thing is that due to the merger Plaza Beauty School and Southern Institute of Cosmetology both no longer exist in some ways but do in others. This makes the entire situation very complicated. It has been brought to our attention that upon our creating The Center and moving Southern Institute of Cosmetology’s Accreditation Standing into our facility we also acquired a business with no VALID business license in the State of Tennessee. Because we did dissolve Plaza Beauty School’s business license (fully expecting Southern’s to be valid) this shows us a being a business operating since the merger back in May 2015 unknowingly without any license to do so. As part of the acquisition of Southern Institute and the Accreditation they held there was agreed to be a time period of review and research to ensure that no outstanding liabilities or problems were to be found before any money and ownership actually changed hands on paper. Part of this was the audit process that most of you saw us going through over the last weeks. With this being said please understand that The Center for Cosmetology Education is still completely owned by the original owners of Southern Institute of Cosmetology and in no part owned YET by the previous owners of Plaza Beauty School. At this point, with no VALID business license in the name of Southern Institute of Cosmetology or The Center for Cosmetology Education we cannot open the doors. The business license must be acquired by the owners of Southern Institute of Cosmetology/The Center for Cosmetology Education. Aside from dealing with any past issues or discrepancies in Plaza’s name there is nothing that any of the Sparks family can do to reopen the school. Please know that we are working with the owners of Southern Institute of Cosmetology to come to an agreement to resolve this situation as soon as possible. At this time things are out of our hands and in the hands of others. All we can do is continue to work with them to get the school reopened.

Students – Ok, so it has been a horrible day full of confusion! As you all know already, The State of TN came in and closed our doors today. We have been back and forth to their offices today trying to figure out what taxes they are saying have not been paid. As most of you already understand Plaza Beauty School and Southern Institute of Cosmetology merged together back in May and created a total new identity for the school – The Center for Cosmetology Education. This involved a LOT of paperwork and notifications and research with many different agencies including TN State Tax agencies. After jumping through hoops to get an idea of what they are even talking about we were able to determine that there were some serious issues with the school that we merged with. Originally this morning we were told that this was a tax owed by Plaza from 2012 which we immediately resolved by paying an overlooked franchise, excise tax bill of $1,100 and then we were made aware that there is a bigger issue with the school we merged with, SIC. We are in contact with the owners of SIC who we are working with diligently to figure out and resolve this issue. The SIC owners live out of state and this is causing some issues as the State of Tennessee wants them to come in their office personally. So there are attorneys involved and power of attorneys being filled out right now to take to the State office tomorrow morning. This is something that we are trying to resolve with every waking moment. We are doing everything we can but we need the owners of SIC to cooperate to resolve this issue as it is no longer in our hands.
The state has told us that we could have this resolved within 3 days and this is certainly our goal, if not sooner. We understand the importance of the school being there for the students that are enrolled. We understand the obligations we have to our students and we are doing everything we can to get you back in school as soon as possible! This time out for up to the next 3 days will obviously not count against you. We will do everything we can to try to ensure each student the chance to return to school and complete their education as planned. All we can do is apologize to you, our students, and your families for this whole situation and let you know that we are doing everything we can to fix this.
-Tommy, Niki and Joan Sparks
