The Wopanaak Language Reclamation Project submitted a proposal to start a public charter school.

The Weetumuw Wopanaak Charter School is targeted at Wampanoag tribes in the state. But enrollment will be open to anyone as part of the public system.

The school plans to start classes with kindergarten and first-grade students. Eventually, it will run through the fifth grade and enroll up to 100 students, The Cape Cod Times reported.

The proposal was submitted to the Department of Education.
