Columbus Charter Shool Fces Cosure at Week’s End

COLUMBUS, Ind. (AP) _ A central Indiana charter school faces closing at the end of this week unless it can raise $250,000 by then.
Leaders of the International School of Columbus told students and parents Monday night that it faces unexpected costs at the school's planned new building, a decline in state funding because of an enrollment drop and poor fundraising results.
The Republic reports the school that opened in 2009 has 116 students in grades 7-12.
School board president Rich Wagner says it made plans to move into a larger building because enrollment was projected to reach 170 students this year.
Wagner says that without enrollment growth the chances of attracting grants and donations were extremely bleak.
