The Erie School Board has scheduled a public hearing to hear arguments for and against the Erie Rise Leadership Charter School.

The hearing was scheduled after the board voted to notify the school that their charter likely will not be renewed.

The notice of non renewal came after the auditor general's office pointed out financial and academic problems with the school.

District officials contend the school is in violation of it's charter. The hearing will happen at 6:30 p.m. on Wednesday at East High School.
