Crane board to consider names for charter school
At a Wednesday special meeting, the Crane Elementary School District governing board will be deciding upon a name for the new district-sponsored charter school to be opened in the fall of 2013.
The board adopted the charter to establish the school on Nov. 27 and decided to delay the choice of the name until a later meeting. They had been planning on naming the school the “Jon and Caroline Jessen Science Academy” but abandoned that idea at the request of the Jessens.
“Mr. Jessen contacted us and said even though he appreciated the honor, he just didn't feel right having the school named after him,” Klee said.
The meeting will begin at 8 a.m. at the Crane Education Center, 4250 W. 16th St. Visit www.craneschools.org/agendas to view the meeting agenda.
