We were able to learn more about Charter Schools: they are tuition free, open to everyone, still have to meet the same graduation requirements, and they are often funded by philanthropy. Today there are over 315 charter schools in Georgia and now Hiers is starting one right here in Valdosta. The name “Scintilla” means a small spark. She chose this name because every fire starts with a spark. Scintilla will have project based learning, service learning, subject specific teachers, and standard based report cards. The school will be located on East Park Ave and student enrollment will start in January and interviews for staff will be in February and March. We are excited to see this school become a success and get our community excited about education again.
