The Riverside Unified School District Board of Education trustees will consider a proposal for a new charter school on Monday, March 6.
The Global Educational STREAM Academy is seeking approval to operate a charter school on Jurupa Avenue for kindergarten to sixth grade students.
The school’s founder and CEO, Byron Briggs, shared how the school plans to take a back to basics approach to science, technology, reading, engineering, arts and math, with a focus on hands-on learning.
The proposed school plans to locate at the Riverside Community Church on Jurupa Avenue. The charter school currently housed at that location, REACH Leadership STEAM Academy has plans to relocate in the coming months.
In recent years, at least five charter schools have sought approval to operate from the Riverside Unified School District Board of Education, only two of the five were approved—Encore High School for the Arts and the REACH academy.
