Longtime Get Schooled readers remember Patti Ghezzi, the originator of this blog and a wonderful colleague of mine for many years. Patti is still working on education issues and has been involved with one of the seven charter school applicants approved this week by the state.
Here is a release by Patti on the new charter school coming to Avondale Estates.
The Georgia Charter Schools Commission approved Monday a public charter school to serve Avondale Estates and surrounding communities.
The Museum School of Avondale Estates will open in August 2010 for children in kindergarten through third grade who live in the Avondale Elementary and Midway Elementary school attendance zones. The school will expand by one grade each year through eighth grade.
