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. 

DALEVILLE -- The attorney for two virtual charter schools alleged to inflate student enrollment and received millions of dollars in overpayments from the state, says new evidence will prove the schools did nothing wrong.

Democrats at the statehouse want legislative leaders to take a closer look at virtual charter schools in Indiana as two scandal-ridden schools prepare to close. 

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.
