Response: Another Charter School. I know Mr. Powell on a personal note and consider him a good friend. However I am not a supporter of Charter Schools. I have no problem with those whom do. I have some family members who attend the NECP but my child will continue to the Edgecombe County Public School System. It was good enough for me in spite of although I have had to challenge the system on others behalf over the years as an education advocate long before I had a child in the system.
TARBORO — A letter of intent filed by The Nola House Charter School, has been approved by the North Carolina Department of Public Instruction’s Office of Charter Schools. While the exact location of the proposed public charter school is yet to be decided, it will likely be in the Edgecombe County portion of Rocky Mount Rocky, said a school spokesperson.
The school’s next step is submitting a full application in December to the North Carolina Department of Public Instruction, with a proposed start date of fall 2015.
If the charter is approved, the school would become the second start-up charter school in Edgecombe County in a three-year period. North East Carolina Prep School (NECP) opened in Tarboro in August 2012. (More)
