Parents Look for Answers After Charter School Closed by State

Parents and students were left confused Wednesday as the Florida International Academy in Opa-Locka was in the process of being closed by the Florida Education Department.

Parents said they didn’t know what to think when told the Department of Education was shutting the school down by the first week of November.

“I was downtown when they talked about the school closing and different things like that, but until I hear from downtown or the principal or the head of the school discusses that with us; my child will remain here at FIE,” said parent Courtney Odom.

Neither the principal, nor someone from the administration was available Tuesday afternoon to answer questions from NBC 6’s Willard Shepard.
