COOLBAUGH TWP., Pa. - A charter school in Monroe County says it's giving up its fight to stay open.
In 2012, the Pocono Mountain School District made the initial decision to revoke the school's charter. That move was affirmed by the state Charter Appeal Board in 2013.
The Pocono Mountain Charter School held a special meeting for the public Monday night.
During the meeting, Allen Young, the court appointed attorney for the charter school, said the school would not be appealing the Charter Appeal Board decision. He said the school will close on June 21st.
The move to revoke the charter came amid claims from then-Auditor General Jack Wagner, who alleged the school funneled $3 million in taxpayer money to a church from which the school rents.
The school disputed that claim.
