Prime Prep to appeal proposed state takeover

Prime Prep Academy will appeal a proposed state takeover.

The charter school, co-founded by Hall-of-Famer Deion Sanders, is in danger of having its charter revoked.

Superintendent Ron Price resigned last week about the same time the Texas Education Commissioner said he would appoint a board of managers and a new superintendent.

Prime Prep has asked for a records review. It claims the TEA is overstepping its bounds and that a board cannot be appointed until after a charter is revoked.

A final hearing on the fate of Prime Prep Academy is scheduled for next week.
