CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - A local charter school is closing its doors at the end of the year.
Harmony Community School in Roselawn will shut down on Dec. 31.
In 2007, former Ohio Attorney General filed a lawsuit against the school, saying Harmony had improperly licensed teachers and incorrectly filed financial paperwork. That lawsuit set off a series of events that decreased Harmony's enrollment.
School officials say they considered many options to reduce expenses and raise additional revenue, but determined these actions would compromise the founding principles of Harmony and their teachers could better be served elsewhere.
Harmony was founded by David Nordyke, one of the co-writers of Ohio's charter school reform movement.
Harmony parents who would like to enroll their students in Cincinnati Public Schools should call 513-363-0123.
