Commission approves expansions that could add 990 charter school seats in coming years

The Idaho Public Charter School Commission has approved up to 990 new charter school seats in the state in the coming years, under proposals from three charter school groups, Idaho Education News reports. Idaho currently has 11,400 students on waiting lists to attend an Idaho charter school. The expansions include more than doubling the size of the North Idaho Stem Academy in Rathdrum, which plans to expand its K-8 program into high school grades; nearly doubling enrollment at Sage International School in Boise; and raising the enrollment cap on Syringa Mountain School, a new K-5 charter school scheduled to open next year in Blaine County.
