Schoolhouse Beat

Palm Beach County (Fla.) will close 1 charter, but gives a reprieve to 2 others

The Palm Beach County (Fla.) district will close one charter school, but the board has decided to let two poorly performing charters stay open. The South Florida Sun-Sentinel says Excel Leadership Academy, a high school in Delray Beach, will be closed. It has financial troubles and declining enrollment. The board also discussed closing Leadership Academy West, a high school in West Palm Beach, and My Choice Academy, a K-7 school in Riviera Beach, but gave each school more time to correct their problems.
