New Charter School Proposed For Natomas

THE NATOMAS BUZZ | @natomasbuzz

The Natomas Unified school board will consider tomorrow whether to reopen the Leroy F. Greene campus as a dependent charter school in fall 2012.

Interim superintendent Dr. Walt Hanline is set to ask the board to approve a recommendation to develop the Leroy F. Green 7-12 Academic Center as a dependent charter school with a STEM academy and visual arts academy.

As proposed, the charter would be developed to ensure the school open as a dependent charter with the Natomas Unified school board as its governing board.

The district closed Leroy F. Greene Middle School last year for renovations. The school’s program improvement status was also cited as a factor in its closure.

Currently, all five charter schools located within the Natomas Unified School District’s boundaries are fiscally independent.

Hanline is also scheduled to give a quarterly charter school report to the school board.

The Natomas Unified school board is scheduled to meet 5:45 p.m. tomorrow, Nov.9 at the district offices, 1901 Arena Blvd.
Open session is scheduled to start at 7 p.m.
