Anniston ESSA meeting

A meeting about Every Student Succeeds Act of 2015 at Anniston High School Tuesday evening.  

One year after Alabama became the 43rd state to allow for charter schools, one such enterprise has the go-ahead to begin classes for the 2017-2018 school year.

On Tuesday, the state’s charter school commission approved an application to open the Accel Day and Evening Academy, which will be overseen by the Mobile Area Education Foundation. It rejected one proposal — Edge Preparatory School in Huntsville — and gave a preliminary OK to a Huntsville-based charter operated by the Sports Leadership and Management Foundation.
