One Rejected Charter Applicant Granted Second Chance

One group whose application to open a charter school in Eastern North Carolina was initially rejected will get a second shot. The state’s charter school advisory council decided Ignite Innovation should advance to the interview round with its proposal for a school in Pitt County in eastern North Carolina.  The group was the only one of 29 previously rejected applicants that the advisory council agreed to give a second chance.   The state board of education last month told the council they needed to give groups a chance to clarify their applications.
