Charter School Proposed for Navy Base Approved By Illinois State Board of Education Superintendent
A charter school proposed for a site on Naval Station Great Lakes has been approved by Illinois State Board of Education Superintendent Chistopher Koch.
Koch issued an order on March 15, 2012 overturning the North Chicago Community Unit School District 187 Board of Education’s rejection of the school proposed by the LEARN Charter School Network of Chicago. The local school board’s 4-2 vote against the proposal came on March 1, 2012 after a presentation of the basic terms for authorizing the charter school.
