As a member of the Beloit community, I believe in the need to establish a K4-12 independent charter school that will focus on ensuring ALL students will have a right to a quality public education.
I fully support the opening of The Lincoln Academy, a public charter school focused on closing the opportunity gap for all Beloit children.
I understand it is a 4K to 12 model that focuses on fundamental academic skills and prepares children for choice-filled lives in a career that fulfills and sustains them.
I have participated in community discussions and plan to stay involved in the process of opening the school.
I urge the UW Office of Educational Opportunity to authorize this charter.
