The Peninsula School District is taking it slow as it looks into the possibility of becoming a charter school authorizer, with Superintendent Chuck Cuzzetto gathering information on the subject for the school board.
On March 21, the school board voted to submit a letter of intent to state officials by the April 1 deadline. The letter is a first step and does not obligate the district to follow through with a complete application to the state Board of Education, which is due July 1.
School board member Rand Wilhelmsen took the lead in wanting to explore the issue before a final decision is made.
“We just put in a page break, if you will,” he said Monday, noting time was a factor in ultimately making a decision on the charter school issue.
