Board members pointed to problems with financial sustainability and the school's failure to increase enrollment.

"The last thing this state needs is another school shut down and students being left high and dry," said parent Aaron Frazier.

Students and parents were also rallying in support of a teacher recently put on administrative leave. They say the teacher was trying to start another school so students would have another option this fall.
