SPRING CREEK CHARTER ACADEMY OPENING FALL 2019
 
A new public charter school based on the successful model of PCA will be opening in Fall 2019. This new charter school's attendance zone will include Decatur, Miller and Seminole counties.  The location for the school is not yet finalized, but now that we have received official approval that will be top priority.  Pre-enrollment forms will be released in November and the lottery for enrollment will be held in February.  We will also likely start taking applications for employment in January.

ENROLLMENT CLARIFICATION AND UPDATES:
*The deadline for submission of pre-enrollment has been extended to Thursday, February 21st at 3PM. The lottery will be held Saturday, February 23rd at 10AM. We have extended the enrollment period to ensure thorough marketing and outreach to all communities.
*The plan has always been to serve only grades Pre-K-5th in the first year. However, we included middle school in our interest survey to see how many families with older siblings would be effected by not offering higher grades.  We are still unsure if adding 6th grade is in the best interest of the school.  Research shows that starting small and growing slowly is best for charter schools.  However, feedback from many parents has been that a 6th grade is needed to keep families together.  Therefore, we have added 6th grade to the pre-enrollment application. This does NOT guarantee that we will open with 6th grade. We are still simply gauging interest with this. The Board will vote prior to the lottery to add 6th grade IF we feel that is a viable option.
*We also want to be clear that Pre-K is not part of the charter. We will have to be approved by DECAL for a GA Pre-K, and will not know that until next summer. Also, since Pre-K is not part of the charter we cannot guarantee continuous enrollment from Pre-K to Kindergarten. All Pre-K students will have to go into the lottery for Kindergarten.
