MONROE, La. (AP) — The Louisiana Department of Education and Prevailing Faith Christian Academy have reached an agreement that allows the school to participate in the Louisiana Scholarship Program for the 2016-17 school year.

Charles Brown, who founded the school, tells The News-Star ( enrollment will be open Jan. 19-26.

The school closed abruptly in September after being notified that it was no longer eligible for the program.

About 40 children were moved to different schools. Those who wanted to stay in the scholarship program were directed toward Quest School in Monroe, Claiborne Christian School in West Monroe and Our Lady of Fatima Catholic School in Monroe.

The DOE dropped Prevailing Faith Christian Academy from the scholarship program after an audit by the Louisiana Legislative Auditor's Office found $84,924 in negative findings.
