WAPT reports the state’s Charter School Authorizer Board on Monday approved plans for RePublic Schools to open a high school and a school serving grades K-8. RePublic already runs three schools in Jackson

The board rejected an application by MS Delta Academies to open a school serving grades 6-8 in Leflore County.

Action on both applications was delayed last month.

The board earlier approved a plan for Ambition Preparatory Charter School to open a Jackson school serving grades K-8.

Mississippi now has four charter schools in Jackson and one in Clarksdale.
