Committee recommends approval of charter school in Hazelwood
Propel Schools, a nonprofit chain of charter schools, has the blessing of city schools review committee to open a charter school in Hazelwood.
The school board must still approve the application. A vote is scheduled Jan. 23.
The school would enroll students in kindergarten through 6th grade at the former St. Stephen's Catholic elementary school building.
An additional grade would be added each year until the school expands to the eighth grade.
Propel operates nine charter schools in the area, mostly in Mon Valley communities.
