NASHVILLE, TN (WSMV) - The Davidson County School Board voted unanimously to revoke the charters of three charter schools operated by Knowledge Academies.

The board, in separate votes, voted to close Knowledge Academy, KA at the Crossings and Knowledge High School in Antioch at Tuesday’s school board meeting.

The district said the schools aren’t meeting performance goals and aren’t keep their financial books properly.

Knowledge Academies can appeal the decision. Lawyers for the school tell News4 they will appeal.

"We know that we have the facts and the law on our side. Our parents expect nothing less," according to a statement provided to News4.

If that appeal fails, the schools would shut down at the end of the fall semester. The 549 students currently enrolled at the school would be able to transfer to a nearby public or charter school.
