Eagle Point School District to Sponsor Charter School
Eagle Point School District, in an effort to recover local students enrolled in other charter schools around the state, is planning to open its own charter school this fall.
The Board approved a proposal for Crater Lake Charter Academy Wednesday evening and appointed James Mannenbach, a 2001 Eagle Point graduate as chairman of the new school’s board.
The District has agreed to sponsor the school, which will have its own board and budget, and will begin work immediately on a contract and charter.
In the last decade the district has lost more than 400 students and the corresponding state funding to other charter schools. The district launched an online program last fall and regained about 70 of those students.
