Two new charter schools will be opened in Killeen and Copperas Cove for the 2013-14 school year.

The Cove campus will be enrolling students in prekindergarten through fifth grade, while the Killeen campus is open to students in prekindergarten through twelfth grade.

Both schools are publicly funded, open enrollment charter schools.

The directors say that incoming students are evaluated and given an individualized learning plan to suit their needs.

The new campuses join three others as part of the Priority Charter Network, which currently has campuses in Belton, Georgetown, and Temple, with a total enrollment of about 475.
