PINELLAS PARK – A group of Pinellas County parents have come together to launch a tri-lingual immersion charter school that promotes plant-based diets, healthy eating, environmental awareness and sustainability.

King Charter Schools will likely open for the 2020-21 school year with kindergarten and first-grade students, said Maria Solanki, a parent and one of the founding board members. The school will add another grade level each following school year.

Although King will be part of Pinellas County Schools and funded by the district, the board needs to raise the initial start-up costs, about $350,000, to open its doors in August 2020.
