NATCHEZ — Instant Impact Global Prep, the charter school approved last week by the Mississippi Charter Schools Authorizer Board, will hold community information meetings beginning on October 22.

Dr. JoAnn Rucker, a South Natchez graduate living now in Texas, is CEO of Instant Impact Educational Services, which plans to open a charter school here beginning with K-2 in the fall of 2023. Rucker said the school would add grades gradually after that year until the school eventually serves K-8 grades.

The Natchez charter school was the only charter school approved by the state’s authorizer board this year.
