A Harpswell charter school will close at the end of the school year
One of Maine’s first charter schools will close by the end of the school year.
State law requires five of the seven members of the Maine Charter School Commission to vote to renew a charter school’s contract. But the Harpswell Coastal Academy was only able to secure four votes at a meeting on Tuesday, meaning it will be the first charter school in the state to close its doors.
