Marion County Considers Charter High School

Dec 21, 2011

Marion County could be the home of two high schools next year. Superintendent Chuck Hamilton and the Marion County Board of Education began discussing the possibility of creating an A5 school in time for the 2012-13 school year during a school board meeting Tuesday of last week. Hamilton, who helped develop an A5 school while he was Mercer County's superintendent, said the school would allow students to earn their diploma, but also give them the flexibility to work.
