Indy Charter Schools Director Assesses Flanner House Situation

Indianapolis' charter school director says they're dealing with the "tragedy" of Flanner House Elementary School on a number of fronts.

The city is holding enrollment fairs for upwards of 176 students.  They held the first one today with another planned for Wednesday afternoon at Watkins Park Family Center adjacent to the school. This after the school's board of directors voted to surrender its charter and shut down September 11th amid a state probe that found teachers helped students cheat on ISTEP exams.

Indianapolis Director of Charter Schools Brandon Brown says it's clear that school administrators lied to parents about their kids' academic performance. Brown says the administration has referred the case to the Marion County Prosecutors' office and the Indiana Department of Education is also reviewing the case.
