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.
Never miss a local story.
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.
