The North Carolina Charter School Advisory Board met in Raleigh to review charter renewal applications. In all, there were 11 charter schools seeking a renewal. Pine Lake was one of four schools that were approved for a 10-year renewal on the first reading! In approving our charter renewal, the state board looked at academic achievement, growth, Exceptional Children programs, and delivery, financial viability, policies and procedures, and transparency of operations.
In every area Pine Lake Preparatory exceeded expectations and is the first charter (out of 152) to go through the renewal process a year early. PLP's charter has now been extended until June 30th, 2026.
Thank you to all our teachers and staff, board members and parents, all of whose dedication made the charter renewal approval an easy decision for the advisory board to make.
