The San Mateo Daily Journal has reported that an administrator and teacher from Capuchino High have come up with a proposal to start a 400-student charter school within the San Mateo Union High School District.
Capuchino High Assistant Principal Ken Montgomery and Nicole Cerra will be presenting the proposal to the high school board at its meeting today at 7 p.m.
The idea for the name of the school is Ideal High School, or i.hs.
According to a report on the school district's website, the charter school would serve as the district's "R&D department," giving the district a place to develop innovative practices that could be scaled up to the other high schools and other districts. It would be a 9-12 school open to all students within the district's boundaries.
The vision for the charter school pulls from Stanford University research.
No location for the school is mentioned in the report, and neither is Capuchino High's involvement.
The school board meeting will be held at the San Mateo Adult School, 789 East Poplar, in San Mateo.
