A new charter school that will open in McClellanville this fall will be getting iPads for its fifth-graders and better access to a nearby salt-water marsh.

Cape Romain Environmental Education Charter School is a kindergarten through fifth-grade school that will focus on environmental education.

The South Carolina Department of Transportation gave McClellanville nearly $400,000 in federal money to build a boardwalk from the school’s campus to the marsh.

The school also has received 10 iPads for students and one for a teacher from Net Texts.
