Columbus Charter School Shutting Down

A Columbus charter school is closing its doors for good at the end of classes today.Operators of the ScholArts Preparatory and Career Center will close after ending their legal fight to stay in business. The school's sponsor canceled its support earlier this month after five years of poor student academic performance and financial mismanagement. The parents of more than 100 students will be forced to find new schools.
