Charter school OK expected

An Everett-based charter school that focuses on math and science will learn by Tuesday whether its application to add a similar school in Saugus is ­approved.

Earlier this month, Commissioner Mitchell Chester recommended that the Board of Elementary and Secondary Education approve a proposal by the Pioneer Charter School of Science to open the Pioneer Charter School of Science II in Saugus. Like the Everett school, it would serve grades 7 through 12, and have more than 300 students. If approved, the school would open in the fall.
