North Texas Academy Closes It’s Doors
DALLAS (AP) — State education officials will help find new schools for students of a now-closed North Texas academy co-founded by NFL Hall of Famer Deion Sanders.
The Texas Education Agency has offered assistance as students of Prime Prep Academy on Monday faced their first full day without a school.
Enrollment at Prime Prep Academy slipped to less than 300 students this year amid school financial and administrative problems. The charter school shut down Friday as a state-appointed board of managers voted to close both campuses, in Dallas and Fort Worth.
TEA has provided transition information, including details on enrollment opportunities at area schools for the rest of this term.
The State Board of Education in September 2011 awarded the school a charter. Prime Prep Academy opened in August 2012.
