Two former educators with the Bibb School District have sent a letter of intent to apply for a Charter School.
13WMAZ has obtained a copy of the letter sent to the Georgia Department of Education and dated March 21.
In an interview Tuesday, former Westside High School Principal Laura Perkins and Esterine Stokes, a former teacher and Graduation Coach at the same school, said they would like to see the Academy for Classical Education (ACE) open in Bibb County, in the fall of 2014.
Initially the concept is designed for middle school grades (6th, 7th and 8th) and require about 40 teachers. The two said there would be room for 150 to 200 students per grade and parents would apply and be selected on a lottery basis.
