I am proud to write you this evening after just returning from Jefferson City, MO, where our Missouri State School Board voted unanimously to approve our Charter Renewal for another five years! Our students, parents, teachers, SLU sponsors, and the resource office are all to be commended for passing of this important milestone. Today’s success reaffirms our conviction that our Charter is a successful model for preparing students for college and career readiness. Within the next week, we will be sending a course description guide with the classes we plan to offer next year. It is an exciting time, because this will be the first year with a graduating class. Our teachers have been working very hard to develop curriculum for new classes we will add to complete our program. My next communication will include this important information to review before scheduling classes for next year to help our families plan. Attached is the letter confirming the renewal from the Commissioner of the Missouri Department of Elementary and Secondary Education. See also this additional information.
