CHARTER ASSOCIATION APPLAUDS STATE BOARD FOR KEEPING ITS COMMITMENT TO BOOKER T. WASHINGTON ACADEMY AND NEW HAVEN CHILDREN
 
Hartford, CT -- Today, the Connecticut State Board of Education voted to approve a revised charter for the Booker T. Washington Academy in New Haven. The revision allows the school to open this fall under different management and with lower student enrollment.
 
Jeremiah Grace, Connecticut State Director for the Northeast Charter Schools Network, made the following statement:
“We applaud the state board for keeping its commitment and extending this lifeline to 120 of the 1,300 New Haven children languishing on charter school wait lists. The founders of Booker T. Washington Academy have emerged from the FUSE episode with experienced new leadership and a plan for the future. We wish BTWA’s board and all of its educators and students the best of luck this school year.”
