What Crossway told the Board of Ed on June 27, 2011

Back on June 27, 2011, the Crossway charter application was about providing a charter school that would be open to all Montgomery County residents through a fair, open and transparent lottery admission process.

As of July 7, 2011, the Crossway applicants were changing their tune and looking for a waiver that would allow them to restrict the applicants to their proposed charter school. 

Here's what Crossway told the Board of Education on June 27, 2011 in response to questions from Board member Laura Berthiaume. 

Also, note that this charter school would admit students when they are 3 years old and expect them to stay through to 3rd grade when the program ends.  Therefore, a lottery to enter this public charter school would have to be held when students are 2 years old.

    FREE DAYCARE! So as I understand this, anyone in the county will have the opportunity to enter the lottery which according to Ms. Berthiaume, md state law requires to be a "fair, open and transparent lottery for all Montgomery County residents" and the child, if they win the lottery, gets a free ride for ages 3-4 of day care and then enters the school. whe-hew! FREE DAYCARE, folks!

  2. That's correct!
