Board seeks to open charter school in southern Brunswick
The Charter Day School Board of Trustees filed a Letter of Intent with the North Carolina Department of Instruction in early January to open a public charter school in southern Brunswick County in 2014. The new charter school will be a replication of the model in place at two schools of distinction currently served by the board: Charter Day School in Leland and Columbus Charter School in Whiteville.
The board feels this is an opportunity for parents to have a choice in their child’s education and is seeking input at a community meeting at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 5, at the Board of Realtors building at 101 Stone Chimney Road SE in Supply.
The public is invited to attend. Charter Day School has charters for tuition-free, open enrollment public schools in southeastern North Carolina. Since 2000, Charter Day School has focused on quality education and sponsors premier performance-driven year round schools in Leland, Whiteville and Wilmington, which will open in this year.
Widely recognized as a compelling choice to conventional public education, these schools have built reputations for retaining dedicated and highly qualified teachers that give students a strong and proven academic foundation. Charter Day School has received numerous awards, including the designation of being a Top-25 School for Academic Growth and of Excellence in the state of North Carolina.
