Somerville Progressive Charter School Passed Over By State

The proposed Somerville Progressive Charter School wasn't asked to submit a full application to the state.

The Somerville Progressive Charter School was not included on a list of proposed schools invited by the state to move forward, according to an announcement issued Friday by the Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Eduction.

According to the announcement, out of the 22 groups that submitted initial applications to the state education department in July—of which Somerville Progressive Charter School was one—12 have been invited to submit full applications.

The Somerville Progressive Charter School was not one of those 12.

In 2011, the proposed Somerville charter school was invited to submit a final application to the state, but in February of 2012 the Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education recommended against granting the school a charter.
