School leaders and board members from the 27 new charter schools opening in NYC this fall attended a welcome celebration at the Tweed Courthouse on June 23. This is always a proud moment for the Charter Center because we've worked with so many of the teams from the very beginning. This year's group is a great mix of neighborhood-based schools and replications of highly successful charters. We're going to profile each of the new schools in a web series called "Grand Opening." Check out the first installment about the Dr. Richard Izquierdo Health and Science Charter School in the Bronx.
