The Boulder Valley school board on Tuesday approved a contract negotiation extension for Summit Academy, a proposed charter high school that is looking for a location so it can open in the district.

The board extended the deadline to negotiate a contract until December. This is the second extension, with the original deadline of July previously extended until Sept. 30.

Summit Academy would be an expansion of Boulder's existing Summit Middle School.

Organizers were interested in locating in a proposed education campus in Superior, but decided last month to sever their partnership with the project's financial backer over concerns about his political aspirations.

Superior's town board then rejected the offer of the financial backer, Jack Chang, to buy 15 acres of town land for the education campus.
