Dugger Residents Push for Charter School

Residents of Dugger in Sullivan County are hoping to keep the town’s high school and elementary school open as charter schools starting this fall.

The school district that includes the town of Dugger is closing the schools in a cost-cutting move.

About 200 people turned out in a show of support during a state charter school board hearing earlier this week.

The board is expected to vote May 1st on whether to approve a Dugger charter school.
