A recommendation to renew the charter of Statesboro's only publicly funded charter school is on the agenda for the State Charter Schools Commission's meeting Wednesday in Atlanta. Under its five-year renewal petition, the Charter Conservatory for Liberal Arts and Technology would have a new name, becoming the Statesboro STEAM College, Careers, Arts and Technology Academy. This retains the initials CCAT, an often-used abbreviation of the school's current name, but adds STEAM for Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math.
