District considering first boarding school

The San Francisco Unified School District could see its first boarding school in coming years if the Board of Education decides to facilitate a charter school in the Bayview.

The school board has been considering Mt. Kilimanjaro Charter Boarding School, which would be the tenth charter in the district, but this one is unique because it would eventually turn into a boarding school.

Charter schools are paid for by the district but are governed on their own accord in most cases.

A district representative said the school would have to teach at least 80 students for the district to pay for its facilities.

The school would start as a K-8 then expand to a K-12 as the students progressed, and within the first two years the school would then come up with a capital plan to turn to boarding.

However finding a boarding school facility would be difficult, said SFUSD representative Mary Richards. 

The school board is expected to vote on whether to approve the school in January. If it gets the green light, it could be open for the next school year.
