November Applicant Interviews

Standard Applicants

The Charter Schools Advisory Board heard from six standard timeline applicants in November. These applicants were seeking approval to open in Fall 2024. The CSAB recommended Movement School West Charlotte, Movement School Raleigh and Movement School Northeast Charlotte to the State Board of Education for Ready to Open approval. Heritage Collegiate Leadership Academy Wake and Agape Achievement Academy were invited back for a Round Two interview to be held at the December meeting. The CSAB voted to recommend SBE denial for Alpha Schools of Excellence. Approved standard applicants will go forward to the State Board of Education in January.


All submitted 2022 charter applications are available here.




Mrs. Jenna Cook, Consultant, Office of Charter Schools, provided the renewals report for Cohort 2023. Renewal schools were provided the opportunity to make 15-30 minute presentations to the CSAB ahead of January recommendations.
