The 2009 Indiana Public Charter School Conference will be held April 29 at the Indiana Convention Center. Nearly all of the state’s charter school principals, board members and service providers will be in attendance as the conference explores several areas – academic performance, succession to college, tools for successful schools, and legal issues – surrounding the state’s charter schools.

“I’m not wedded to the idea of a school, but rather the idea of cathedrals of learning,” said Mayor Cory Booker today to a diverse crowd in Indianapolis of more than 150 legislators, educators, business owners, and philanthropists. “Instead of focusing on seat time, we need to be focused on achievement.”

Pikes Peak Community College and the Pikes Peak Prep have signed a collaborative agreement establishing a first-of-its-kind partnership, allowing the charter school to rent and conduct classes at the PPCC Downtown Studio Campus.

Pikes Peak Prep is the first K-12 charter school in the country to have signed such an agreement with a college to begin a Middle College program.

We have more than 100 students on our waiting list. And that is before our building goes up. Just wait to see how many new applicants we receive as the building gets built. Below is a picture of the actual ground breaking.
