Judge upholds revocation of E. Texas charter school

TYLER, TX (KLTV) -

A decision to revoke the open-enrollment charter of Azleway Charter School in Tyler has been upheld by a judge in the State Office of Administrative Hearings.

The decision means the school is no longer eligible to receive state or federal funding. The future of the school that was home to about 150 children this past year is unclear at this time.

Azleway officials were notified in December that the charter would be revoked under a new law that was in effect this past year. Under that law, the Texas Education Agency is required to revoke charters after three straight years of poor financial and/or academic ratings.

Rated "Academically Unacceptable" for the 2010-11 school year, Azleway was also assigned a “Substandard Achievement” rating for the 2011-12 and 2012-13 school years.

Tuesday's decision follows several months of legal work to save the school's charter.

The 26-year-old school operates three campuses and educates children from first grade through high school.

The revocation does not affect Azleway Boys' Home, which is a separate entity.
