Another charter comes to rescue set-to-close Baton Rouge Charter Academy at Mid City

Turning around a charter school that hasn’t achieved its academic goals is always preferable to shutting it down, especially if the parents and students strongly support that school.  That is exactly what’s happening in Baton Rouge, Louisiana.

An Indianapolis-based charter school group which runs an elementary school in Baton Rouge is coming to the rescue of a larger but lower-performing charter school in town that, unless something changes soon, will close in May.

The Louisiana Board of Elementary and Secondary Education is scheduled to consider a proposal at its April 18 meeting from GEO Prep Academy to take over Baton Rouge Charter Academy at Mid City.
