Greenwood Charter School Gets a Green Light

GREENWOOD, MS (Ben Caxton) — A Mississippi state board has given final approval for a new charter school in Greenwood. The decision was made Monday by the state’s Charter School Authorizer Board to approve the application of Leflore Legacy Academy. Out of eight operators who submitted their applications in May, the Greenwood school was the only one approved. Leflore Legacy Academy will open its doors for the 2020-21 school year to sixth-grade students, and later expand to offer service to grades six through eight. The state currently has six charter schools. All but one are in Jackson. The other is in Clarksdale. Charter schools receive tax money but are operated by private, nonprofit groups and operate independently from local districts and the state Board of Education.
