DOVER, Delaware — State officials placed four charter schools on probation, but decided not to close them after investigating enrollment and financial concerns.

The News Journal of Wilmington (http://delonline.us/1GvRjm6 ) reports the schools will still be open in the fall, including two new ones Thursday. Officials say two new charter schools — Freire Charter School and Delaware Design Lab High School — will open this fall as scheduled. The other two — Academy of Dover and Prestige Academy — will stay open, assuming they meet the terms of their probation.

Secretary of Education Mark Murphy and the State Board of Education placed Academy of Dover on probation for a $650,000 lawsuit filed by a former charter management organization. The other three are on review because they had not enrolled enough students as required.
