Encore Academy will hold a public hearing Tuesday to discuss the charter school’s 2013-2014 budget. The $2.9 million budget for the fiscal year that began one week ago is currently available for review at the school, and the public will be allowed to comment at Tuesday’s meeting.

The charter school opened its doors last year and provides a musical arts curriculum alongside its academic curriculum. Encore shares Crocker Elementary School with a New Orleans College Prep charter school, Crocker College Prep.

The hearing will be held at July 9 at the school beginnings at 6:30 p.m., in conjunction with the school’s board meeting.
