OSCEOLA COUNTY, Fla. — A charter school in fighting to convince the Osceola County School Board why it should stay open.
On Monday, a judge ordered the termination of a contract between the school district and American Classical Charter Academy. The school has had past issues involving teaching certificates and money.
The business manager for the charter school told the board that those financial issues are normal for charter schools, and said the school’s academics should be taken into consideration.
A termination letter from superintendent Dr. Debra Pace said an audit showed expenditures were more than $600,000 in the red.
The school had only been open for three years. About 250 students were enrolled as of Saturday.
