School starts Monday for 2,800 Charlotte students

Andrew Dunn:

Summer break has come to an end for about 2,800 K-8 students in four Charlotte year-round schools.
 Monday starts the 2014-15 school year at Bruns Academy, Walter G. Byers School, Druid Hills Academy and Thomasboro Academy. The schools are part of Project LIFT, a public-private partnership between Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools and donors who pledged $55 million to improve academics and graduation rates at nine westside schools. The private money helps cover the cost of extra teacher time and busing.
