Town of Matthews Statement on Action Related to HB514
Posted on Tuesday April 24, 2018
The Town Board's vote was in no way a vote to break away from CMS.

Matthews, NC – The Matthews Board of Commissioners voted last evening (4-3) to support a Legislative Agenda. The approved agenda includes support for HB514. HB514 is a bill in the North Carolina General Assembly that would give certain localities the right to start their own charter school, should they choose to do so. Should HB514 eventually be signed into state law, it only gives the locality the right to create their own charter school - it does not mean that the Town of Matthews will take any action, let alone break away from CMS. 

The Town Board's vote was in no way a vote to break away from CMS. 

Should HB514 be signed into state law, extensive additional research and input from the community will be sought prior to the Town Board considering any additional action.
