The Escambia County School District has announced that Escambia Charter School will be closing the end of the 2017-2018 school year.

The county said over the last six years, student enrollment has been low and it has been a struggle financially for the school. Due to this, the county says it is not fiscally responsible to keep the school open.

The Escambia County School District's Department of Alternative Education will help in the placement of current students enrolled in Escambia Charter.

The placement of students for the 2018-2019 school year will be determined on grade level, GPA, and age.

Escambia Charter has been a bridge for students who needed to improve their grade point average. The school has a lower student to teacher ratio.

Graduation for the 2017-2018 school year will be held on May 22 at the University of West Florida's Conference Center, Building 22. It will begin at 6:30 p.m.
