Three cheers for the perseverence of Cheyenne Classical Academy parents who are submitting another charter school application to the Cheyenne, Wyoming School District! These parents were beat down last year when the school board voted against them and legislation to loosen the charter school law failed.
Parents are proposing a classical school modeled after Ridgeview Classical Schools in Fort Collins -- a proven success! Cheyenne Classical would serve students in K-8 using the Core Knowledge curriculum.
While trying another charter school application through the school district, the school's founders are simultaneously appealing to district court, the State Board of Education's decision to uphold the denial by the local board.
