JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — Acclaim Academy is officially closed as of 3:15 Friday. It’s the charter school’s third and final campus to be shut down in Florida. With only a few weeks left of classes, students are now being relocated to their home schools so they can finish their testing.
Out of about 250 students, the Duval County School District said 179 have been placed in their respective schools as of Friday afternoon, leaving nearly 80 kids without a school come Monday morning.
Even if they have been placed successfully, parents said they’re nervous for the sudden transition after just being blindsided with the news of the closing.
An eviction notice appeared on the school’s doors Friday afternoon just before 3 o’clock. The building and parking lot were nearly empty, with exception of a few teachers cleaning out their classrooms.
