Lansing charter school faces possible closure

May 9, 2013

Administrators, staff and students of one of Lansing’s newest charter schools got some bad news yesterday.  The Learn, Live, Lead Academy, launched by local banking executive and former Lansing Community College President Paula Cunningham, was told its contract was being revoked.  “L3,” as it’s called,  is nearing the end of its first year of operations.

In a statement, Bay Mills Community College, which is the school’s authorizing body, said the action is necessary because of the academy’s "lack of compliance with contractual requirements".

Current State host Mark Bashore talked with Cunningham, along with L3 Board vice-chair Charlie Creamer.
