SEATTLE — Two organizations have submitted applications this spring to open charter schools in Washington state.
Summit Public Schools wants to open a middle and high school in West Seattle. If the application is approved by the statewide Charter School Commission, it would be the charter management group's second location in Seattle and its third in Western Washington.
An organization called Willow Public School has also applied to open a new charter middle school in Walla Walla. The organization says the school will be focused on project-based learning.
Six other schools that had expressed interest in submitting an application did not do so by the May 15 deadline. In a survey of those applications, most of the groups told the commission they would try to apply next year and that they needed more time to solidify their plans.
