THE PALM BEACH POST THURSDAY, MARCH. 26, 1998 . 5B MSL Palm Beach County charter schools OK'd: 45 Palm Beachers sue over PBIA nighttime noise strictions placed on public schools. A 1996 stale law permitted the schools and they have been popping up statewide. Charter schools allow private organizations to receive state money to create innovative public schools, free of many of the restrictions placed on public schools. A 1996 state law permitted the schools and they have been popping up statewide. Board member Diane Heinz said the district has to make sure charter school students are prop erly watched. "I would hate to think we aircraft, developing stricter pilot guidelines for quieter landings and departures, and creating a $100 million insurance policy. But a curfew would not be practical for Palm Beach International Airport, said Leon St. John, a county litigator. The complaint demands money to compensate for value lost on their homes potentially millions of dollars. But plaintiffs say it's not about the money they just want an end to the noise. The airport has spent tens of millions of dollars on noise abatement since 1986, when it first started collecting fees from airlines. consider those students any less precious in terms of safety," she said. The board is ultimately re3" sponsible for the children, so it is-up to the district to make sure the charter schools are accountable, Superintendent Joan Kowal said. Kowal made a point of saying the district is not trying to make it hard for charters to open and final charter contracts will be based on other districts' charters. Al Milligan of the Partnership Academy knows the time frame is tight, but he thinks it can be done. "We're confident we can get it . completed," he said. By Stephanie Desmon Palm Beach Post Staff Writer With little enthusiasm, the Palm Beach County School Board gave provisional approval Wednesday night to five charter schools that would open in August. But before a single one opens its doors, there is a lot of work to be done, including leases to sign, insurance to purchase, transportation and food service to arrange and the list goes on. Board members approved the applications 6-1, with Dorothy Montgomery dissenting, only after wondering whether they really want to give responsibility for nearly 1,000 students -to private groups. They were told by General Counsel Cynthia Prettyman, however, that they had little choice but to approve the charters, which have met the legal Area God.
