AUGUSTA — The commission that will approve Maine’s new public charter schools wants to hear what the public has to say in northern and eastern regions.

The Maine State Charter School Commission plans to travel to Aroostook and Washington counties in early April to hear about regional educational needs that could be addressed by charter schools.

The public sessions will be April 5 at Northern Maine Community College in Presque isle, and April 9 at the University of Maine at Machias.

The charter school commission held sessions earlier this month in Augusta, Bangor and Portland.

State law authorizes up to 10 public charter schools statewide during the law’s first 10 years.
