HOLLYWOOD, SC (WCSC) -

Agitated parents with students enrolled at the Lowcountry Leadership Charter School can breathe a little easier now that the school district has approved the school's temporary lease until construction can be completed on their new building.

Jason Sakran, Charleston County School District spokesman, said the board voted 5-3 Monday night to approve the school's request for a lease at the R.D. Schroder Middle School building on Highway 162.

The lease will run 60 days, beginning on the day it is signed, according to Sakran.

Leaders at the charter school have been scrambling to find a building for their students while construction is completed on their facility at Dixie Plantation and Gibson roads.

Classes were scheduled to begin on Sept. 5, but an issue with the lease meant only teachers were allowed inside the building.

A start date has yet to be announced for the school.
