Supporters Plan to Re-submit Morrisville School Application
Morrisville Chamber Plans Special Excursion to Peru
Janet Salvio-Littlejohn and the rest of the board members and supporters of the proposed Kaleidoscope Charter High School in Morrisville plan to re-submit the charter campus application in September. At a meeting in January, North Carolina’s Department of Public Instruction and the Office of Charter School’s Charter School Advisory Board failed to send the group’s application to the next approval level. Five years ago, Salvio-Littlejohn and Lara Visser co-founded the proposed charter school to create an empowering high school offering youths a core-curriculum enhanced by (digital) arts and technology, preparing them for careers and beyond. “We are disappointed, yet not deterred with the outcome of this meeting,” said Littlejohn, Board of Directors Chair. “Our current team will re-submit a revised and assertive application in September 2017.”
