Will Chesnut Remain a Charter School?

Review the Charter Petition and VOTE!

During Open House/Registration on August 5th, there will be a station where you can cast your ballot for/against the new charter petition. For the next two weeks, it is available online here, and in the front office at Chesnut.

Please note that to maintain our school's status as a charter, we have had to meet new state requirements in our charter renewal petition. Therefore our petition suggests several changes to Chesnut's operations, detailed within.
