INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) – Two Indianapolis charter schools have announced plans to close at the end of the school year.
ADI Schools Incorporated announced plans to give up charters awarded to Andrew Academy and Padua Academy charter schools in 2010. Both schools were sponsored Indianapolis Mayor Greg Ballard.
The announcement comes one day after Flanner House Elementary, another charter school sponsored by Ballard, announced it was closing next month after an investigation uncovered widespread cheating on its students’ state standardized tests.
State figures showed students at both Andrew and Padua Academy fell far below statewide average for ISTEP+ pass rates in public schools.
