Board cuts charter school applications to three
Published: April 9,2014
JACKSON — The number of applicants to open Mississippi’s first charter school has been narrowed to three.
The state’s Charter School Authorizer Board voted today to declare three applications eligible and complete to move forward. They are Reimagine Prep, which would operate grades 5-8 in Jackson; Phoenix Early College Charter School, which would operate grades 9-12 in the Natchez-Adams school district; and the Inspire Charter School, which would operate grades K-6 and 9 in Columbus.
Of the original 12 groups, one withdrew. Four didn’t provide more information when the board found applications incomplete. Four others weren’t allowed to proceed even after submitting more information.
Interviews for the three remaining applicants are planned in May. The board plans to vote on approving applications in June, finalizing contracts with charter operators that month.
