Bill Hangley, Jr. reported on the meeting Thursday night at King High School for NewsWorks/WHYY. King is one of the six Renaissance (Match) Charter Schools announced for Year II of the Renaissance Schools initiative. King is currently managed by Foundations, Inc. Foundations is one of seven provider finalists eligible to manage King as a Renaissance School.
The school advisory committees at the Renaissance Charter Schools will recommend a provider to Superintendent Ackerman by mid-March. She will then submit a proposal to the School Reform Commission for review and vote in the spring.
The Notebook‘s coverage of Renaissance Schools this year is being conducted in partnership with WHYY/NewsWorks with financial support from the Philadelphia Enterprise Reporting Fund and WHYY/NewsWorks.
