The Utica City School District is in line to get its first Charter School for grades 6 to 12. According to a Syracuse based group responsible for leading the efforts, the application to begin the process will be filed with the New York State Education Department tomorrow, (1/17/12).

WIBX is reporting that organizers aim to open the Charter School in August 2013, and offer tuition free enrollment to area students. For those that don’t know, Charter schools are primary or secondary schools that receive public money but are not subject to some of the rules or regulations that apply to other public schools to produce certain result. The results they produce are set forth in each school’s charter. Since charter schools are part of the public education system, they are not allowed to charge tuition.

If given the green light, and when the necessary funding is secured, the school in Utica will offer a broad variety of extracurricular activities that will emphasize the importance of community building and social engagement.

A public information session will be held at the Utica Public Library on Thursday, January 26th, at 7:00 p.m. More information is available at,
