JACKSON, Miss. — Mississippi’s first charter school will likely open in the Capital City next year.
The Charter School Authorizer Board Monday approved the application of RePublic Charter School to open Reimagine Prep in Jackson. RePublic Charter and the Board must now agree to a contract. If there are no hang-ups, RePublic would open in the fall of 2015 and accept students in grades 5-8. RePublic already operates two schools in Nashville, TN.
The board turned down applications for charter schools in Natchez and Columbus.
