The decision gives school officials the go ahead to begin renovating the 125,000 square foot former Lear plant on Elkton Road, Eclipse Ghd about half a mile south of the existing NCS elementary and middle schools.
Meece said he's excited about working with high school students again.
On Friday, he was already moving forward with construction plans, and met with construction company representatives in the afternoon. Renovations will begin in June, he said.
The school accepts applications from any student living within a designated 5 mile radius of the school. Students are selected at random by a lottery held each year.
high school has had many vocal opponents, including community members and Christina School District officials who at public hearings said they feared if NCS started admitting high school students, the best students would leave the public school system.

"I worked at St. Mark's High School for 15 years and the Charter School of Wilmington for five years," he said. "Every grade level has its own enjoyable things and its own challenges, but I do miss the high school aged students. You can use a little more humor, and they get it."
The school will start admitting its first class of 162 ninth graders in the fall of 2013, and will add a new grade each year over the next three years.
Meece said the school had already planned to begin offering free and reduced price lunches starting this fall.
"In all likelihood, this failure discourages low income families from entering their children in the Newark Charter School lottery," the letter states.
In a letter to the state Board of Education last month, ACLU Delaware members also asked the board to reject the expansion proposal. The letter cited the low percentage of minority and low income students attending NCS, compared with the much higher percentage attending Christina School District schools.
Durangos were made until the plant closed in 2009 will be renovated to fit classrooms for students in grades seven through 12. It will eventually house a full sized gym, cafeteria, media center, three technology labs, an engineering lab, six science labs and music facilities for band, orchestra and chorus, said Gregory Meece, Newark Charter School's director.

State Board of Education Secretary Dr. Lillian Lowery, in her own letter submitted to state BOE members last week, recommended that the board approve the NCS expansion but only if the school followed certain guidelines, including mandatory participation in the free and reduced cost lunch program and a community campaign to better advertise the school and its application process.
4 percent Hispanic and 15 percent low income which the ACLU letter stated is partially due to the school's lack of participation in the state's free and reduced cost lunch program.
