DOVER, Del. (AP) - The Delaware state board of education has unanimously approved applications for charter schools in Wilmington and Dover.
The board voted last week to approve a charter for Academia Antonia Alonso, which would serve students in kindergarten through fifth grade in Wilmington and would focus on Hispanic English-language learners.
It also approved Early College High School, which would be located at the Delaware State University campus in Dover and would focus on science, technology, engineering and math.
The board failed to approve a proposal for First State Montessori Academy, which would have served students in kindergarten through sixth grade based on the Montessori education model.
