The founding group for the Academy of Choice Charter School will hold three informational sessions to get community input for the new charter school.
The group is looking for community comment on the design and development of the school, which is scheduled to open in the fall of 2017.
Features at the Academy of Choice include looping, in which teachers and students stay together for more than one year to develop a safe and caring classroom learning community; before and after school enrichment including a homework club; and assistance with links to services for students and their families, such as counseling and housing assistance.
The information sessions will be held in the Gloria J. Parks Community Center, 3242 Main St., from 6 to 8 p.m. on May 4, 11 and 18.
