10 new schools opening in Palm Beach County

The new school year starts in less than two weeks and several new charter schools are getting ready to open in Palm Beach County.

The Palm Beach County School District says 10 new charter schools are slated to be available to students for the 2014-2015 school year.

There are charter schools for students from kindergarten through the 12th grade.

Charter schools are tuition-free public schools but they are independently run.

The school district approves the schools that open in the county.

Students need to apply through the specific school to attend.

When a student is going to a charter school, the school needs to provide the transportation, not the school district.

Many times charter schools have different curriculum than traditional public schools.

Some focus on certain subjects like the arts and others focus on training students in specific career paths.

The Palm Beach County School District says its schools do supply theme-based curriculum as well through it's choice and in-house programs.

The choice programs gives students of all grades a chance to learned from specially trained teachers. The students learn skills that could help them with a specific career path.

The In-house program is a specialized program inside a school which students are zoned to attend. The district says anyone interested in this program should contact their school councilor or school's Choice coordinator.
