Sumter, SC (WLTX) - The state public charter school district is in court Tuesday looking to extend a temporary restraining order against one of its former schools.
The Mary L. Dinkins Charter School in Sumter County opened its doors Monday despite having it's charter revoked earlier this month.
A court ordered the school to stop their operations on Friday, citing low test scores and irregularities. The state public charter school district says it has cut off funding to the school and no longer recognizes it. The school's director, however, says their appeal of the decision allows them to continue operation.
The State Law Enforcement Division says it's investigating impropriety at the school.
