Second charter school proposed

Written by  Tuesday, 08 October 2013 09:37

  Statesboro's Charter Conservatory is working to create Statesboro STEAM College and Career Ready Academy, is geared toward kindergarten to fifth grade students.  The Charter Conservatory School serves middle and high schools.


  A petition is being prepared for presentation to the State Charter Schools Commission next year.  A target date of August 2015 has been set to open the new school.  It will concentrate on science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics (STEAM).


  In January a $25,000 charter planning grant was awarded by the Georgia Board of Education.


  When the plan was first presented the Bulloch County School system was against it.  However, following approval of Amendment 1 in last year's elections, the state has the ability to decide on establishing such schools.


  A seven member board of directors and school director will govern the school.  Benji Lewis, who is currently student services director and volunteer coordinator for the Charter Conservatory is expected to the director.


  Persons interested in learning more about the proposed charter school, see sample curriculum and provide feedback can go the website
