Second charter system forum set for Thursday

The Muscogee County School District will hold another public information forum on the district's application to become a charter system on Thursday, Oct. 16 at 5:30 p.m. in the Bradley Library.

Charter systems are allowed waivers in some state laws in exchange for greater accountability in terms of student achievement and test scores. The district must submit its application to the state by Nov. 1.

The district held the first charter system forum on Tuesday night.
