Rock River Charter School could grow
JANESVILLE--A Janesville charter school might expand next fall, increasing the number of young adults with high school diplomas while boosting enrollment and revenue for the Janesville School District.
Those are the benefits of a proposal the district’s administration will present to the school board early in the new year.
The proposal calls for the expansion of Rock River Charter School, which provides alternative programs that help high school students who are at risk of dropping out. The school also has programs to help dropouts get a high school equivalency degree through the GED Option 2 program.
The school had an enrollment of 156 in September. It has a waiting list, with students selected through a lottery. Officials are optimistic about increasing the enrollment.
