A new charter school for Coweta County?

That’s the very thing that is being decided Wednesday morning, February 10th at 8:30 a.m. at the DOE building in Atlanta, 205 Jesse Hill Drive, East Tower, 20th Floor. The school which is to be opened in Senoia, and is open to all citizens in Coweta County had already received approval. While many are excited at this prospect, Coweta County’s School Board is appealing this issue at the February 10th meeting.


There will be a meeting for those in support of the school at the Freeman Sasser Building at Senoia Park on Seavy Street on Monday February 8th at 7 p.m.. This meeting is intended to help answer questions regarding the school, a tentative timeline for opening and any other questions supporters may have. Members from GCEF Board and their partners from CSUSA will be there to answer these questions. The Georgia Charter Schools Association will also be there to speak about the charter movement, the appeals, and provide information on opportunities for parents and supporters to be involved with the Association.
 

In order to show the State Board of Education that citizens want charter schools, and to keep the charter school here is Senoia, it is important that supporters attend the meeting February 10th at 8:30 a.m. at the DOE building in Atlanta. In addition to this support, the GCEF and CSUSA is aksing that “all parents and community supporters contact the State Superintendent Kathy Cox and the state school board representatives on the Charter Committee (as well as the full board) in support of the Commission’s approval and request that they not reverse the Commission’s decision.”
