Students at one local charter school are learning a lesson they won't find in a text book: persistence.
The North Carolina State Board of Education reinstated the charter of the Cape Lookout Marine Science Charter High School in Morehead City Tuesday, according to the Carteret County News-Times.
The state voted to allow the school's charter to expire earlier this year, but the school opened its doors for the new school year anyway, fighting to get its charter back.
According to the Carteret County News-Times, Cape Lookout Marine Science Charter High School's charter is renewed for two years as long as it has no negative fund balance on June 30 of both years, no material findings in the financial audit, student enrollment cannot fall below 65 and the school must administer tests in all required subjects according to state policy.
The State Board of Education voted in March not to renew the charter of the Cape Lookout Marine Science Charter High School in Morehead City. However, the school is open and running, but without a charter, and thus without any public funding.
The Carteret County News Times says the board for the Cape Lookout High School is meeting with the state Tuesday, to see if they have done what it takes to get their charter and their funding back. We'll keep you posted on what happens.
