Four New Charter Schools Approved for Jersey

Four  charter organizations have just been approved by the NJ Department of Education to open new schools in September. According to NJ Spotlight, the four are:
•    College Achieve Central Charter School (serving Plainfield), K-12, 1,748 students
•    Dream Academy Charter School (serving Newark), PreK-8, for 720 students
•    Excellence Charter School (serving Camden), K-12, 1,944 students
•    Link Community Charter School (serving Newark, East Orange, Orange, Irvington), 5-8, 288 students
Established charter organizations, like the overseers of these four, have access to a speedy application process. Excellence Charter School in Camden is proposed by the highly-regarded Mastery charter school network. I wrote about this last week at WHYY’s Newsworks.
