LIVINGSTON, Ala. (WTOK) - More steps forward are being taken to open a charter school next year in Sumter County.

The deadline for the head of the University Charter School to submit the institution's official charter to the Alabama Public Charter School Commission is Friday, Sept. 22.

Dr. J.J. Wedgworth says the school's grade structure plan will also be submitted at that time.

The University Charter School is set to open in the fall of 2018 in Livingston.
