WASHINGTON (WUSA9) -- A vote Monday night put the future Options Public Charter School - and it's students - in question.

Board members assured parents - if Options does close - they'll have a plan and resources for those at-risk kids.

Students and parents pleaded with the board not to do it, calling Options a school of last resort for students with behavior problems, learning disabilities and those kicked our of other schools.

WUSA9 anchor JC Hayward was the chairman of the Options school board until the Districts Attorney General filed a lawsuit against her, the school and former officials alleging financial mismanagement and inside dealing.

They've all denied the allegations but DC's Public Charter School staff recommended tonight's action saying there was fiscal mismanagement.

The beginning of revocation proceedings does not mean revocation - it begins the discussions - even if they vote to close it, they could delay that closure as long as they wish.
