The Pittsburgh Public Schools board voted Wednesday night to deny applications for Homewood Children's Village Collegiate Charter School, Provident Charter School for Children with Dyslexia and the Robert L. Vann Charter School.

The vote at the board's legislative meeting came after the school district's Charter Review Team recommended that the three charter applications be denied because they lacked information about the curriculum and plans for meeting the needs of students. The review team also found the proposed schools did not provide expanded educational options beyond those available at Pittsburgh Public Schools.

In other business, the board decided to go paperless beginning with the agenda review and legislative meetings next month. There will no longer be printed agendas. Those wishing to review the agenda will be able to access it on the district's website at www.pps.k12.pa.us.
