Charter school application deadline nears

Posted: Updated:
ATLANTA (WTOC) -

Friday is the deadline for charter schools to submit applications to run independent public schools authorized by the state.

Georgia voters approved the amendment last fall that would recreate the charter commission, allowing charter schools to be approved over local school board objections.

Schools that apply this time around won't be open until the 2014 through 2015 school year.
