Children’s Aid Society plans charter school

New York City’s Children’s Aid Society will open a charter school offering health care and social services to low-income Bronx children, reports Gotham Schools.

Drema Brown, a former elementary principal in the Bronx, will lead the effort. She plans an outreach effort to persuade welfare parents to apply to the new school.

The 158-year-old charity works with city schools to provide social services and after-school programs. Children’s Aid also runs a clinic in the Bronx.
