We are currently preparing to send our application into the State Board of Education requesting their permission to expand our grade levels from K - 8 to K - 12. Below is the current timeline for your information:
October 8, 2012- Application for expansion due to the Department of Public Instruction. We are requesting to add grades 9 - 12, with no more than 50 students per grade level. We plan to add grades 9 and 10 in 2013-14. We will then add 11th grade in 2014-15 and 12th grade in 2015-16 for a total of 200 student.
October 25, 2012- Chatham County Schools will submit an impact statement to the Department of Public Instruction as a result of our application.
It will then take approximately 60 days for the State Board of Education to review all the applications for Charter School expansion. We expect to hear from the State Board in late January, early February.
Until then, we are working to build the curriculum for our students and we are meeting with a building planner to prepare the plans we will be using for our new facility. As we review the building plans, we are also working to plan for any sports facilities we feel may be needed for our students.
This is the most current information we have at this time. Please stay tuned to this site for updates. If you have any questions regarding the high school, please feel free to contact Dr. John Eldridge at 919-742-4550.
