BASIS school network is planning to open a primary campus on Tucson’s south side as part of an initiative to bring its challenging curriculum to underserved areas.
“This is something that’s been on the hearts and minds of the board and me as well,” said Peter Bezanson, CEO of BASIS.ed, the parent company for the nationally acclaimed BASIS schools.
BASIS Tucson South, one of two new campuses approved by the Arizona State Board for Charter Schools, would open in the fall of 2018 or 2019. The other campus, Phoenix South, is set to open this fall. In coming years, BASIS plans to open a third school in north Baton Rouge, Louisiana.
