A charter high school is not likely to be approved on Marco Island. The Collier County District Board has a Magnet School for the Environment in their master plan at Lely High School and a Magnet School for the Arts at Golden Gate High School in space that is already built. Therefore, the MIDC proposal duplicates the District's master plan, which will expand choice for Marco Island students. Marco Island does not qualify as an underachieving, minority district, which is the demographic targeted by the federal Race to the Top dollars. Isn't it reasonable to ask what will become of donations when the District turns down the MIDC's application, and the State fails to overturn the District when they have a similar proposal in the works in space that is already built and serves the same student population?
