Charter school gets OK

Posted By on Mon, Jul 10, 2006 at 1:40 PM

The Academics Plus Charter School in Maumelle, which has been troubled by financial and personnel issues, has convinced the state Board of Education that it's righted itself and is ready to operate another year.

The Board today gave the school approval to continue to receive state funding. The school has lined up 334 students to attend after figuring it needed a minimum  of 286 and a state Education Department spot check indicated the students were serious about attending. The school will operate grades 3-12. It emphasizes a rigorous core curriculum and offers high school students the possibility of graduating with sufficient collegiate hours to qualify for an associate's degree.
