Petition Closed

The District 2 community is not in favor of placing Success Academy schools in public school facilities in District 2 (including existing and new District 2 facilities). Our excellent public schools throughout the district make the addition of charter schools unnecessary. Locating charter schools in the district will further increase the overcrowding with no benefit to the district. Rather than co-locating within our excellent District 2 public schools, we would like to see charter schools use their own resources to find space and house their schools.
