Having passed review by the state’s Charter School Advisory Board (CSAB), a potential new local school will now have its fate decided by the State Board of Education.

The CSAB heard presentations Monday and Tuesday from nonprofit boards seeking to set up charter schools across North Carolina.

Davis Academy, the grades 6-8 school proposed for Chadbourn, was among three to appear before the advisory group Tuesday morning.

“Of three schools, we were the only school who received a unanimous vote for approval of a recommendation to the State Board of Education at yesterday’s Charter School Advisory Board’s final interview,” board chair Yolanda Davis wrote in an email to The News Reporter. “One other school also received a positive recommendation and one was denied their recommendation. Next steps are for us to continue to work towards solidifying our facility.”

Each applicant had one hour with the advisory board, most of which the CSAB used for questions and deliberation.

“They asked questions about the facility and where we were in that process,” Davis said. “It was stated that our application was strong and demonstrated a compelling need.”
