Charter Advisory Council recommends charter for Corvian Community
by Staff Writer
According to a news release, the State Board of Education will have to approve this recommendation so that Corvian Community can convert from a private school to a public charter in August. The decision will be made March 1.
“I am excited about the council’s decision, the opportunity and the impact it will have on our community,” said Stacey Haskell, Corvian Community School founder and director. “We are seeking qualified teacher applicants and will need teachers and teacher assistants for kindergarten through third grades.”
The process is part of the state’s Fast Track charter school approval process, created when the state legislature was late in removing the 100-charter school cap last summer. While schools must usually take a year to plan before opening to students, Fast Track allows schools to forgo that process and open in time for the 2012-13 school year.
