New charters in Durham, N.C., make it harder for school district to carry out several projects

March 5, 2007
Loss of funds could affect district's plans to open a new middle school and three small high schools this fall.

Voyager Academy, a new charter school for grades 4 to 8 in Durham, N.C., will open in August after getting final approval from the state. The opening of Durham's eighth charter will expand a $6 million dent in the school system's budget. For each student from the Durham school district who enrolls in a charter, a certain per-student allowance follows him. This will make difficult several projects coming up for Durham Public Schools, including the opening of a new middle school and three small high schools in the fall.
