A Raleigh charter school for students with special needs is appealing the State Board of Education’s move to shut down the school.
The state board voted March 5 to begin revocation of the Dynamic Community Charter School’s charter, citing financial troubles and problems with how the school administers programs for students with intellectual and developmental disabilities.
A review panel will consider the appeal and make a recommendation to the state board before a final vote. Dynamic officials have asked for a formal hearing as part of the review.
The school has strong support from parents, who say their children have made academic and social gains there.
The school, which opened last fall and has nearly 70 students in middle and high school, is expected to remain open for the rest of the school year.
