SOUTHERN TIER’S FIRST CHARTER SCHOOL OPENS WITH MORE THAN 200 STUDENTS ON FIRST DAY OF SCHOOL
FINN ACADEMY: AN ELMIRA CHARTER SCHOOL OPENS AT FULL CAPACITY AND WITH A WAITLIST  

Albany, NY – The Northeast Charter Schools Network today sent the following statement congratulating Finn Academy Charter School on the first day of school.

Northeast Charter Schools Network New York State Director Claudia Granados said, “Finn Academy is the region’s first charter school, and that is truly historic -- but opening today wasn’t an easy task. Starting a new charter school isn’t for the faint of heart especially when you consider the inequity the schools face in their funding. It takes true grit and the educators and families at Finn today prove they have that.

“More than 200 children now have another option when it comes to their public schooling. Every community should have educational choices and now Elmira has one more. We look forward to working with Finn, the families, and the community and wish them the best of luck with the first day of school.” 

About the Northeast Charter Schools Network: The Northeast Charter Schools Network is the membership and advocacy organization for the more than 250 charter schools in New York and Connecticut. Its mission is to support and expand high quality charter schools.
