Local charter school closed down

HOUSTON HISD told Eyewitness News that school officials did not apply to the district in time to get approval for summer school, and therefore had to close. All the teachers were laid off and given the option to re-apply to teach in the fall.

The school district also said the principal and associate principal were let go because of poor performance.
