NATCHEZ, Miss. (AP) - Natchez residents will have the chance to voice their opinions later this month on a proposed charter school in the area.

The Natchez Democrat reports (https://bit.ly/1qvHoHO ) the Charter School Authorizer Board voted last week to host public hearings in the three Mississippi communities where charter schools could eventually be opened.

In Natchez, the Phoenix Project Community Development Foundation wants to open the Phoenix Early College Charter School, serving grades 9-12.

The public hearing will be May 22 in the Nelson Multi-Purpose Room of Copiah-Lincoln Community College.

The group is seeking to open an early college high school model that would have open enrollment for students in ninth through 12th grades, with a plan of opening to 75, ninth grade students in 2015.
