Charter school moves ahead

Company says it will address concerns later

The company that will manage a recently approved charter school in Lowell will wait until the enrollment process is complete before addressing concerns over projections of high student-teacher ratios for those with special needs and English as a second language, according to a representative.

By a 6-3 vote, the Massachusetts Board of Elementary and Secondary Education approved the application for the Lowell Collegiate Charter School, a college preparatory school for students from kindergarten through twelfth grade that will be managed by SABIS Educational Systems, Inc., a private, for-profit company based in Minnesota. Although a location has yet to be determined, the school has proposed to open for the 2013-2014 school year.
