State Public Charter School Authority holds closure hearing from online charter school
CARSON CITY, Nev. (News 4 & Fox 11) -- An online charter school called Nevada Virtual Academy that serves 2,000 students grade K-12 statewide is facing possible closures and during a meeting on Friday April 27th, the school and parents of students enrolled attended to show their support to keep the school open.
The school was first opened in 2007 and had its charter reauthorized in 2013. The school had consistently been rated at two stars under the state ranking system, but this past fall, the elementary school received a one-star rating - the lowest rating possible.
A notice of intent to close was filed with the Nevada State Public Charter School Authority that unanimously approved the intent.
The school presented it's response and plan to move forward to the authority today while parents attended the hearing to show their support. If the school's plan is accepted, the closing process will come to a halt, and the school will remain open and will be subject to monitoring.
If the plan is rejected the board could move to close the school or appoint a receiver.
