Three hundred students at Victory Preparatory School North, an HISD charter school, will have to find a new school by the end of the week.

Here are four things you need to know:

— HISD provides oversight for the school, but the campus is run by a non-profit board that made the decision to shut down.

— Parents received a letter on Feb. 9 letting them know that this Friday, Feb. 15, would be the school’s last day. Parents said they were told at Monday night’s meeting that  financial problems were to blame.

— HISD says they are working with parents to enroll students in their neighborhood school or a magnet school if possible.

— The school’s second campus, Victory Preparatory Academy South, will remain open

“It’s sad they didn’t tell us ahead of time because I’m assuming they’ve been knowing,” said parent Ingrid Morris.
