York Preparatory Academy, a K-12 public charter school, is no longer planning to construct a second campus to serve the more than 1,100 students on its waiting list. Citing ongoing delays over a grading permit not being issued by Yprk County resulting in construction cost increases and delayed opening, the York Prep Board last night voted not to build a second campus. According to sources, the York Prep school board could no longer absorb any more cost increases and decided to forgo their plans for a second campus. All other constuction plan approvals and permits were in hand with only the grading permit needed. Gone is a 46 million dollar campus that was planned for the south side of Rock Hill in a proposed community called Kettlesong, 109 new jobs and seats for 1125 students. Currently York Prep has a waiting list of 1614 students.
