The shuttered Pencader Charter School shouldn't expect a solution from the state today regarding a path forward.

In a letter obtained by WDEL, the state Department of Education says Pencader has shown a significant lack of clarity regarding its financial state as it closes out the school year and its doors permanently in June, as ordered by the state Board of Education in February.

In a letter to parents, the school's president set a deadline of today to decide whether to give Pencader the $350,000 it needs to finish out the school year or it could close its doors as early as April 30th.

The school's long struggle with finances, leadership and academics ultimately led to its forced closure.
