District Board Approves 4 New Charter Schools
WASHINGTON (AP) — The D.C. Public Charter School Board has given tentative approval to four new charter schools to open their doors in August of 2013.
One of the schools, Sela Public Charter School, will give students instruction in English and Hebrew on alternating days. The school plans to locate in either Ward 1, 4 or 5.
Community College Preparatory Academy is going to serve as an adult-education school to help prepare students for community college, while Ingenuity Prep is built around an early childhood program with an extended school day. Somerset Preparatory Academy is designed as a college-prep program.
There are nearly 32,000 students enrolled in 53 charter schools in the District. The four new schools were selected out of 11 applications.
