Two more charter schools in Indianapolis to close

Back to TopCommentsE-mailPrintBookmark and Share

Two Indianapolis charter schools have announced plans to close at the end of the 2014-15 school year.

ADI Schools Inc. on Friday announced plans to relinquish charters awarded to Andrew Academy and Padua Academy charter schools in 2010, WRTV reported. Both schools were sponsored by Indianapolis Mayor Greg Ballard.

The announcement comes a day after Flanner House Elementary, another charter school sponsored by Ballard, announced it was closing next month after an investigation uncovered widespread cheating on its students' state standardized tests.

Department of Education data showed students at Andrew Academy and Padua Academy fell far below statewide average for ISTEP+ pass rates in public schools.

    Why is this a surprise? If it's not sports related he could care less! The man has one mind set. How much can I spend on worthless sports venues!
