Marshall Elementary proposed as charter school

Boston school officials announced Monday that they intend to tap an education-management company to convert the Marshall Elementary School in Dorchester into a charter school next fall, under a proposal to boost student achievement at the academically struggling school.

The announcement marks the second time school officials have turned to the outside firm to transform a traditional public school into an “in-district” charter school. The action will require approval of the Boston School Committee and the state Board of Elementary and Secondary ­Education.
