The state schools superintendent is ordering two Columbus charter schools to close and wants to question their sponsoring superintendent.
State officials say the schools were inadequately staffed. They found reports of several significant fights. Officials also say meals weren't served at regular times and were often bought at fast food restaurants.
The school is sponsored by the North Central Ohio Educational Service Center. Ross has asked its superintendent to explain issues of poor approval and oversight.
A phone message and email to the center's superintendent after hours were not immediately returned.
