Proposed charter school clears hurdle

info@islandpacket.comJune 12, 2013 

Parents and educators hoping to open a new charter school in Beaufort County received preliminary approval Tuesday from the S.C. Charter School Advisory Committee.

Lowcountry Montessori School in Beaufort is one of 19 applicants for the 2014-15 school year and would be sponsored by the S.C. Public Charter School District, not the Beaufort County School District.

Now that the advisory committee has recommended approval of the school's application, the state charter-school district has 45 days to approve or deny it.

School organizers will present their application to the state charter-school district July 29 for final approval.
