Hamilton County school board rejects charter school application again

Hamilton County school board rejects charter school application again

December 27th, 2011 by Kevin Hardy in Local - Breaking News

The Hamilton County Board of Education again rejected an application for a new charter school - this time against the recommendation of school district administrators.

Board members failed to garner the needed five votes with a 4-2 motion to approve a resubmitted application for the New Consortium of Law and Business, a proposed business- and law-themed school for sixth through 12th grades.

The rejection opens up the possibility for charter applicant Tommie Henderson to appeal to the state board of education.
