ESE has received charter school prospectuses from ten founding groups seeking approval to open new charter schools in Andover, Cape Cod, Central Mass., Fall River, Fitchburg, Greater Boston, Lynn, and Springfield. After reviewing the proposals, in mid-September, ESE will notify the founding groups whose prospectuses show the most promise and invite them to submit full applications. Final applications are due on October 25, 2013. After a comprehensive review by ESE staff and external reviewers, Commissioner Chester will decide which finalists to recommend to the Board of Elementary and Secondary Education. The Board will vote on the Commissioner's recommendations to award new charters in February 2014.
Anyone know where the central Mass one is?
UPDATE: I found it:
|Central Massachusetts Science Technology Engineering Art and Mathematics via Language Immersion Public Charter School||Westborough, Hopkinton, Marlborough, Shrewsbury, Southborough, Northborough||2014||K-8||675|
So...we're already down to a 64% reimbursement rate on charters...how low is the Commissioner going to recommend that we drive it?
