History

The Community Public Charter School, was founded in 2008 and originally located at Burley Middle School. The school features a personalized, small group setting and utilizes William Glasser's Choice Theory in order to promote self-esteem and self-management. The school allows no student to fail, instead working with each student toward success in learning essential skills.[1] CPCS will move to the Murray High School campus in the fall of 2015. The move reduced physical space and presented new challenges. [2]


Funding concerns

In the summer of 2015, the school made a request for additional county funds to guarantee funding for some of the instructions at a cost of an additional $190,000 a year. [3]
