PACE Academy's charter not renewed

The state Board of Education on Thursday unanimously agreed to not renew PACE Academy’s charter.
So, unless school officials launch a successful appeal, the troubled charter school in Carrboro will close its doors for good when its charter expires June 30, leaving more than 160 students scrambling to find a new school in the fall.
The school has been cited by the state Office of Charter Schools for patterns of noncompliance, low academic performance and concerns about the school’s financial sustainability. 
School leaders could not be reached for comment Thursday, but in recent weeks have challenged many of the charges made by state charter school officials.
