Tuesday night the board of directors who run two scandal-plagued virtual charter schools planned to hold a public meeting to discuss its closure. But what took place, leaves more questions than answers. 

Minutes before the meeting was to start, the attorney for the Indiana Virtual School and Indiana Pathways Virtual Academy said it's canceled. 

“Two board members are here for the executive session and resigned just a few minutes ago,” Mary Jane Lapoint said to a small group, including stunned former employees. 

The oversight board of two virtual charter schools at the center of an enrollment inflation scandal and a federal investigation voted Monday to close both schools. 

The Daleville Community Schools Board unanimously voted to revoke the charters for the Indiana Virtual Schools and Indiana Pathways Virtual Academy. State officials accused the schools of receiving more than $40 million in state funds by including students that no longer attend the schools in enrollment rolls. 

Two virtual schools being investigated by the state could close as early as this September. The school district that authorizes the schools began the process of revoking their charters at a special meeting Thursday night.

Two virtual charter schools embroiled in controversy could close sooner than expected, as the school district overseeing the two schools says families and students have so far been left in the dark about the future of operations.

Two virtual charter schools and the district overseeing them have to pay back millions of dollars in state funding, after the Indiana State Board of Education voted to get money back from the schools at its meeting Wednesday.

Daleville Community Schools reached a deal last month to close the two virtual schools it oversees by next summer. The district said earlier this year the operators of Indiana Virtual Pathways Academy and Indiana Virtual School failed to educate hundreds of enrolled kids.

The school district that authorizes two of the state’s virtual charter schools says hundreds of the enrolled students haven’t earned credits or submitted course work, and is making moves to revoke their charters.
