It's official, Gateway to Success Academy chartered by ESD
It is now official, there will be a new public charter school in Mason County — Gateway to Success Academy, or G2S — beginning in the fall of 2016.
A group named the West Michigan Educational Leadership Group (WMELG) formed about a year ago to study the issue and on Wednesday the members of that group — Anita Wilson, Lisa Stich, Don Fallis, Margaret Mitchell and Doug Bacon — were officially sworn in as the members of Gateway’s new school board, which was created Wednesday through a contract signed by both the WMELG board and West Shore Educational Services District board.
"Plans call for the school to offer something new to the area, project-based learning as it’s called in the world of education. It will be heavy on hands-on and real-world-experience learning."
