The state Public Charter School Commission decided last week to close the year-old Nampa Classical Academy, citing shaky finances. The school is appealing that decision to the state Board of Education.
The academy has more than 500 students enrolled this fall and had hoped to keep the state from cutting off their funding while they fight to stay open.
But the Idaho Department of Education plans to follow a deputy attorney general’s conclusion, which found school administrators are not entitled to state money while they appeal.
The school is scheduled to receive its final installment of state funding on July 15. (AP)
