BONITA SPRINGS-Fla.- The principal and students ar Richard Milburn Academy are heartbroken.
Student Joshua Cerda said, "I feel if the school closes there goes my opportunity and I am so close it is just right there and I could just touch it."
Student Ibis Morales said, "This school has united us like a family and to take that away is destroying every heart."
Student Yesenia Valero said, "This is the last opportunity for us to accomplish our dreams."
The Academy's State Director said because of poor enrollment the school did not qualify for enough money from the state to pay all of its bills. They are now short $30,000 a year.
This could be the second Richard Milburn Academy to close since August. Back on August, 8th the Fort Myers school closed. An investigation showed some students received credits they did not earn.
The Lee County School Board will vote on whether to close the Bonita Springs charter school.
