CHARTER SCHOOL-JUDGE
Judge orders Ohio to sponsor inner-city charter school to keep it operating next year

Reported by: Associated Press
Reported: Tuesday, July 15, 2014 8:56 AM EDT
CINCINNATI


A southwest Ohio judge has ordered the state Department of Education to sponsor an inner-city charter school to keep it operating.

Hamilton County Common Pleas Judge Nadine Allen ruled that the DOE made it difficult for the VLT school to find a sponsor and that closing would do "irreparable harm" to its 600 students.

The Cincinnati Enquirer reports the department will have to provide nearly $300,000 to make sure teachers and staff are paid in the next school year.

VLT's sponsor had declined to renew its contract, leaving the school facing closure. The judge says the Department of Education warned two potential sponsors about taking on the school, although its superintendent says its academics didn't trigger automatic closure.

A DOE spokesman says it will make sure the school performs.
