The proposed Central Massachusetts Science Technology Engineering Art and Mathematics via Language Immersion Public Charter School's event is from 7 to 8:30 p.m. at the Tatnuck Bookseller, in the Westborough Shopping Center, at Route 9 at Lyman Street, according to the school's website.
The proposed Commonwealth charter school would open for the 2014-2015 academic year with 315 total students among Kindergarten to grade five, according to the prospectus that organizers filed with the Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education on July 29.
The proposed school would have 584 students in its fifth year, when it would serve Kindergarten to grade eight. Full enrollment would be 675 students.
The school would serve students in Westborough, Hopkinton, Marlborough, Northborough, Southborough and Shrewsbury. The school would be located in Westborough, although the specific site is "not now known," the document states.
The state received 10 new charter school prospectuses.
State education officials said in a press release earlier this month that in mid-September, they'll invite the groups that "show the most promise" to submit a full application by Oct. 25.
The proposed Central Mass. charter school would "develop and enrich confidence, curiosity and a love of learning in all students about Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics through a rigorous academic curriculum, a focus on learning through the arts, and building brain elasticity and abstract awareness through a language immersion learning atmosphere-Hindi, Mandarin or Spanish," organizers said on their website.
