Charter school faces its first vote before education board

A potentially new charter school in San Francisco Unified School District is facing its first hurdle Monday.

The district’s budget and services committee will discuss and act whether to approve or deny an application for the new school submitted by C5 International School.

The proposed school would follow a Reggio Emilia approach thatrequires teachers and caregivers see children as competent, resourceful, curious, imaginative and posses the desire and ability to communicate with others. The approach is based off an internationally successful preschool.

The school would be K-8 with up to 400 students if approved.

A location has not yet been determined. But the school could open as soon as next fall, if approved.

If denied, the applicants can appeal to the state for funding.

The full San Francisco Board of Education needs to vote on the application before the school can move forward.
