A new charter school is one step closer to opening in Bartlett.
The Shelby County Schools Board of Education approved a contract with Smart Schools Wednesday night in a unanimous vote.
The new facility will be called The New Consortium School of Law and Business.
Classes start August 20 of this year with just 7th graders in a former FedEx Kinko's building at the intersection of Stage and Elmore. Smart Schools is planning to add more grade levels next year.
