The Imboden Area Charter School, one of the state’s oldest open-enrollment charter schools, is planning to relocate to Black Rock.

The state’s Charter Authorizing Panel on Tuesday approved the IACS plan to leave its location at 605 W. Third St., in Imboden and relocate to the former Black Rock High School building, located at 207 Saint Joseph St., in Black Rock.

The former Black Rock School District merged with the Walnut Ridge School District to form the Lawrence County School District.

The campus offers a larger location, with a cafeteria and athletic facilities.

Plans for this move have been in place for months now, Mayor Wilson played a pivotal role in working with the School Board and Administration Officials during this process.

ISCS announced on their social media account that they intend to start the school year on August 14 in the Black Rock facility.

Enrollment forms for grades K-8 can be picked at Black Rock City Hall.
