Community Rallies Together At Charter School Hearing

There was a public hearing at the Dugger Community Center Tuesday night, where members of the community spoke out on why Union High School and Dugger Elementary School should remain open as charter schools.
A local community is one step closer to creating a charter school.

It's a story we've followed from the beginning. In December, the Northeast Sullivan School Corporation announced it would close Union High School and Dugger Elementary School at the end of this school year. Since then, members of the community applied for the schools to become charter schools.

They held a public hearing at the Dugger Community Center on Tuesday night.

Hundreds of the school's supporters shared their thoughts with the state's Charter School Board.

It's the final step before the board votes on Union's application.

Supporters hope Tuesday's forum will convince the board that the schools should stay open as charter schools.

Union is one of four schools petitioning to become charter schools. There will be one final meeting before the schools are voted on. That meeting will be on May 1st.
