During the first year of Public School Choice, the Board of Education voted to decide who the school operators would be. The applicant teams that were allowed to submit applications included internal and external teams such as Charter and Partnership organizations.
On February 23, 2010, former Superintendent Cortines presented his recommendations to the Board of Education and the decisions were made. Additionally, two more new schools participated in PSC 1.5 and were presented and voted upon by the Board on April 27, 2010.
