The Delta County School Board has approved a Waldorf inspired education program in Paonia.
For the past three years, a group of parents and educators in the North Fork Valley have tried to open a Waldorf inspired charter school.
The school board and the state board of education denied their charter recognition.
However, the group worked with district officials and school administrators to come up with a compromise.
It would create a K-4 program inspired by the Waldorf model at Paonia Elementary School.
