North Penn Board Says No to Charter Schools

Three separate organizations filed applications to form charter schools within the boundaries of North Penn School District. The Reporter's Jen Lawson broke the story of the board's denial of all three applications

North Penn Board Says No to Charter Schools

No charter schools coming to North Penn School District.

That's the consensus following votes by the school board Tuesday night, after its members denied three separate charter school applications, according to Jennifer Lawson of The Reporter.

Lawson reported that each of the three applicants will appeal.

The three applicants seeking charter schools in the district were:

  • Montgomery Flex Charter School
  • Education for New Generations 
  • North Penn Charter School Collaborative

Montgomery Flex is the only one of the group that went through this process before. Its initial application was denied by the school board, as it did not favor the cyber aspect of the school's curriculum.

According to The Reporter, Montgomery Flex proposed opening at Hillcrest Shopping Center. Education for New Generations eyed a space at 100 Commerce Drive in Montgomery Township.

North Penn Charter School Collaborative is planned as a branch of the Souderton Charter School Collaborative in Souderton, according to the article.
