RTO min standards

2021 Ready to Open 

Ms. Claire Porter outlined the status of this year's Ready to Open charter schools. She explained the minimum guidelines that must be met by schools planning to open in the fall (see image). CSAB made preliminary recommendations. At its June meeting, the board will make final recommendations and those will go to the State Board of Education for approval in July 2021. One RTO school, Davis Academy Chadbourn, relinquished its charter due to difficulties in obtaining a facility in Columbus County. 


Amendments and Presentations


The CSAB approved two amendment requests: Coastal Preparatory Academy's Request to Partner with Charter One and Davis Academy's Relinquishment.



The CSAB heard informative presentations/updates from NC Virtual Academy, Lakeside Charter Academy, Eastside STREAM Academy, Tillery Academy, Monroe Academy, IDYL, and Charlotte Secondary.
