    By: Brittney Donovan , Action News Jax


    An Orange Park charter school will close after receiving two consecutive F school grades.

    The Clay County School District terminated its charter with Orange Park Performing Arts Academy at the direction of the state, officials said.

    Orange Park Performing Arts Academy was denied a waiver to remain open as a charter school under the provisions of the statute.

    School officials said the district will work with families to provide resources to find new school options for their children.

    Parents or guardians who have questions about their child’s neighborhood school are asked to contact the district office at 904-336-6500. 

    A letter posted to a Facebook page for Orange Park Performing Arts Academy on July 27 said the school will reopen Aug. 15 as a private school.
