Charter school announces application deadline (N&R)

From the N&R:

GREENSBORO – The Triad Math and Science Academy, Guilford County’s newest charter school, will accept student applications for the 2008-09 academic year until May 10. On that date it will hold a lottery to fill up its anticipated 268 seats in grades kindergarten through six.

Academy officials also signed this week a lease on a 25,000 square foot building at 900 Sixteenth Street to house the program. The academy, which received final state approval in March, is estimated to cost about $1.7 million in state and local funds. Charter schools are similar to public schools in that they are taxpayer-supported and free, but the state provides more leeway in teacher certification and programming.

  1. So they just go out and lease a building? What did this building used to be? That seems rather easy. Why can’t Guilford County schools lease buildings for new schools? …or do they just prefer moldy trailers and mega-million new buildings?

  2. Erik,
    What are your thoughts on the location of this new charter school in relation to crimes in the immediate area?
    The statistics are posted here:

  4. I guess we would have to see how things go and how the school grows and matriculates after it opens.
