Nearly 150 people were in attendance at the Charter School Fair, which was held from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m. at Holiday Inn- Crabtree. Teachers and student leaders from 25 North Carolina charter schools were on hand to provide parents with more information and application instructions. The event took place during our National School Choice Week.
