DETROIT (WWJ) – Charter school operators are going to have to prove themselves if they hope to take over a Detroit Public School building.

Detroit Public School officials will release a proposal Thursday that outlines what charter school operators will need to bring to the table if they want to take over one of the DPS buildings slated to close. A couple of the prerequisites include a 90-percent graduation rate for their program and an existing charter school with at least 500 students.

DPS spokesman Steve Wasko says they are narrowing the field of candidates for phase one of the process in order to have everything in place by the Fall.

Applications for charter school hopefuls are due on May 2.
