Montgomery school board delays charter vote

From elsewhere in The Post: Crossway Community Montessori School, a private preschool in Montgomery County, wants to become the county’s first charter school. The Board of Education delayed a vote Thursday on an application for establishing the new school.

“Board members debated a last-minute proposal to establish a boundary for students who would be eligible to enroll in the independently operated public school. The so-called ‘catchment area’ would be similar to boundaries used for magnet programs in the county, but many questions arose about how it could work for a charter school,” says reporter Michael Alison Chandler.

Read Chandler’s story to find out what Crossway Community’s next step is for establishing a charter school.
