Charlotte-Mecklenburg district plans for several new schools

The Charlotte Mecklenburg (N.C.) School District is proposing to open several new schools in 2014-15: a high school on the University of North Carolina-Charlotte campus, a manufacturing academy at Olympic High and new Montessori and math-science magnets. The Charlotte Observer reports that the new schools are part of the district’s push to offer public-school options to compete with charters and private schools.
