The Orchard Park School Board will be meeting in a informational session this evening on charter schools. The meeting at the Baker Road Administration Building will begin at 7.
Board members, who have expressed curiousity over the potential of charter schools several times in recent years, will hear representatives from the Edison Schools group before engaging in a question-and-answer period.
An information technology charter school for grades K-8, which Edison would run, has been proposed in Orchard Park but did not receive approval to start next fall. Organizers have said they plan to pursue plans for the school, which would be independent of Orchard Park Central Schools.
