State education officials have placed New Bedford’s first Charter School on probation, for low MCAS scores in math and language arts over the past two years. 

Global Learning Charter Public School Director Stephen Furtado tells WBSM News, the designation is disappointing, but it can be turned around. 

He says the school has stepped up its MCAS prep work, both in the classroom and after-school.  At the state’s urging, the school will also hire an education consultant to work with faculty. 

Furtado expects improvement soon.
