Newark Charter School

Newark Charter’s intermediate school on Patriot Way is pictured in this file photo.

The Delaware House last week passed a bill that would prohibit Newark Charter School from giving admission preference to students in the Newark area.

If passed by the Senate and signed by the governor, HB 238 would eliminate the ability of NCS and other charter schools to give preference to students who live within 5 miles of the school. Instead, students from across the state would have an equal chance in the lottery that determines acceptance into the school.
