NORTHWEST ARKANSAS - A charter school in Fayetteville is looking to expand into Bentonville.  This week, Haas Hall Academy submitted an application to the Arkansas Department of Education, to add a Bentonville location. 

According to Superintendent Martin Schoppmeyer, they would like to build the school on South East J Street in Bentonville. 

He says they would replicate the program already in place in Fayetteville.  Schoppmeyer says there is a large demand for another charter school, and there are thousands of kids on the waiting list. 

A decision isn't expected from the state until the fall.
