Area charter school sponsor may close Cleveland site

The Lucas County Educational Service Center, the largest sponsor of charter schools in Ohio, said it plans to shut down one of Cleveland s oldest and largest charter schools unless its administrators devise a plan to boost test scores and correct financial troubles.

The agency served the International Preparatory School with an intent-to-suspend notice.

The school, which received about $6 million in taxpayer dollars last academic year, has failed to pay its employees, post data for the state education department, and had low test scores. It also had a staff retention rate of only 37 percent.

The educational service center s five-member governing board is expected to vote on the school s suspension on Tuesday.
