The Bay City Academy Board voted Thursday evening to close its North Madison campus in a former church.
That means around 70 Kindergarten through 6th grade students will be transferred to the Academy’s Farragut campus at 301 North Farragut.
Academy Board President Craig Johnston says the change will be good for everyone with a gym and playground for all the students, plus all technical facilities in one spot.
Johnston added the move stemmed from Chemical Bank foreclosing on the Madison property owned by developer Steven Ingersoll who was convicted of tax fraud last year and is due to be sentenced in U-S District Court in Bay City next month.
The charter school is working to eliminate a $1,300,000 deficit.
The Academy has until February 25th to complete its move, but hopes to have all students at Farragut by the time Christmas break ends.
That would mean about 212 students altogether in grades Kindergarten through Nine.
