After months of fruitless efforts to secure a home, the board of directors of Career Academy agreed unanimously the career-oriented high school will close its doors next month when this school year ends.
The Advocate reports on Thursday the board is holding off a decision on whether to relinquish the school's five-year charter with the East Baton Rouge Parish school system. The charter is not scheduled to expire until 2016.
The closure of Career Academy means about 190 ninth-, 10th- and 11th-graders will have to find another high school this fall. The senior class of about 50 students is set to graduate in May.
