Three new charter schools are slated to open in the Charlotte area in August, with offerings that range from Chinese immersion for young children to apprenticeship learning for teens.

Mecklenburg and surrounding counties have seen new charter schools open every year since the state lifted its 100-school limit in 2011. Charter schools, which are tuition-free public schools that report to independent boards, are taking applications now for 2018-19. If there are more applicants than spaces, the schools hold an admission lottery.

East Voyager Academy will teach preK-4 students in English and Mandarin Chinese at a school on Tuckaseegee Road in west Charlotte. It will eventually be a preK-8 school. Applications for the lottery have closed, but the school continues taking applications for any seats that haven’t been claimed. Details: www.eastvoyager.org , 704-412-6988 or [email protected]

Durham, N.C. — A Durham middle school principal abruptly resigned last year after sending dozens of emails and text messages to two eighth-grade girls, saying he loved them and calling them "sweetie," "baby" and "cutie," resulting in a restraining order against him. Yet, that did not keep the principal from going elsewhere to work with children.

Ed Forsythe was an award-winning educator with 37 years of experience when he suddenly resigned as principal of Voyager Academy on Nov. 30 and was escorted off school property.

He lost his state teaching license several months later after the State Board of Education found that he "conducted his behavior under the guise of acceptable administrator duties," and that his "inappropriate behavior" was "masked as counseling, tutoring and mentoring the students."
