CMS to Open New Community School


by WCCB Charlotte

 CHARLOTTE, NC -- CMS plans to team up with the Charlotte Housing Authority to open a new school in west Charlotte.  It's part of the Renaissance West Community Initiative.  The project is pumping $75 million into developments along West Boulevard and Billy Graham Parkway.  The school will foster partnerships with families, businesses, and community groups.

"If a child has at least one caring adult in their education experience, their academic progress soars," said CMS Superintendent Heath Morrison.  "It's so exciting.  It takes the concept of a neighborhood school, takes it to another level."

The school will be built with $30 million of voter-approved bond money.  It's slated to open in 2017.
