Hearing set for Mississippi Delta charter school application

CLARKSDALE, Miss. (AP) – Another Mississippi community will get its say on a plan to open a charter school.

The Charter School Authorizer Board will hold a public hearing Monday in Clarksdale to hear community thoughts on a plan for the Clarksdale Collegiate Public Charter School.

The board will vote on Clarksdale Collegiate’s application next month. The school would start with grades K-2 in fall 2018, growing to a K-8 school with 675 students by 2028. The proposed school would be led by the former principal of a charter elementary school in Helena-West Helena, Arkansas.
