A north Minneapolis charter school that lost its building lease with the Minneapolis School District is closing.
Minnesota School of Science officials say they don't have the resources to open in a new location.
The charter was kicked out of its building, which it was renting from the Minneapolis School District, after it fell $500,000 behind in lease payments.
School officials sued the district, but the eviction was held up in court. The Minneapolis district had planned to open an elementary school in the building this fall, but a summer's worth of legal maneuvering pushed those plans back to 2014.
In a letter to parents, Minnesota School of Science officials said they're deeply saddened by the move and its disruption to students.
The charter's website lists other schools in the area where students can enroll.
