NEWS: Catalyst Academy wins appeal for new charter school in Pittsburgh

The Pennsylvania Charter Appeals Board voted Tuesday to overturn a decision of the Pittsburgh school board and approve a new charter school in the city.

Catalyst Academy, a proposed kindergarten through eighth grade charter school, won its appeal to the state by a 3-2 vote, after the board of Pittsburgh Public Schools denied the school’s charter application in a unanimous vote in February 2018.
