The Alabama Charter School Commission approved the plans for Montgomery’s first charter school startup.
The plan passed with a 5 to 1 vote for the creation of Lead Academy.
Charlotte Meadows is the board chair for Lead Academy.
She says the startup school will now look into the purchasing of a 44,000 square foot building for sale on South Court Street.
They hope to provide education for Pre-K to 5th grade this coming September.
A charter school is still funded by the state.
It is given more freedom in its educational goals and the students they serve.
