San Diego charter school shutters doors
The school will close at the end of the month and has been working with current students’ families to help them find new schools for the fall. Most of the school’s students, who are in grades 6-12, are socioeconomically disadvantaged and are Black or Latino, according to state data.
Annette Kennedy, the school’s interim director, attributed the school’s closure to low enrollment.
“It’s just not been in the best interest of the school to continue,” Kennedy said in an interview. “It’s truly bittersweet. No one wants a school to close but, in reality, a school has to have enrollment to maintain sustainability.”
