WASHINGTON -- Parents and students are protesting the closure of yet another charter school in the District.
The DC Public Charter School Board plans to announce Tuesday that Monument Academy in Northeast is closing its doors for good.
The school has gained notoriety for how they approach teaching students with extensive learning and emotional needs. However, the Washington Post has reported serious safety concerns at Monument.
Since the start of the year more than 1,800 reports of incidents such as bullying, physical altercations and sex assaults have been reported at the school.
Monument is one of many charters schools to be shut down in D.C. National Collegiate Prep is also set to close by the end of the 2021 school year.

43 schools have already closed since 2009 leaving more than 11,000 students to find new schools.
