Potomac Public Charter School fights shut down order from school system

(Posted 19 Jun 2007)
Pr. George’s charter school seeks deal to stay open, avoid court.
Examiner, 19 Jun 2007 (Fowler).
Prince George’s County - A Prince George’s County charter school that the Board of Education tried to shut down last week wants to have an agreement in place to keep the school open prior to a June 26 court hearing on the situation.

“Potomac Public Charter School’s board [of directors] is willing to work with the Board of Education … to reach an amicable solution,” said Marsha Byrd, president of the board of directors. “But the decision would rest with the Prince George’s County Board of Education.”

On Friday, a Prince George’s Circuit Court judge granted the school a temporary restraining order preventing the board of education from shutting it down. A hearing on the school’s request for an injunction to prevent a closure until the school exhausts the appeals process is scheduled for June 26. The school in Fort Washington instructs 137 students in kindergarten through fifth grade.
