A Magic Valley charter school says it intends to keep the doors open through the current school year, but they're not as certain about the future.

This morning's Twin Falls Times-News reports that officials from Xavier Charter School huddled with parents Friday night to talk about the school's options in the wake of the September report that Xavier faces a $23,000 deficit for its upcoming fiscal year and owes $81,000 in back taxes.

Xavier has offered what it calls classical education to kindergartners through 12th-graders in Twin Falls since 2007.

On Friday evening, officials said they had renegotiated their current annual lease for the school buidling from $809,000 down to $450,000, but added that "the school can't afford to pay more than $450,000 on the school buding over the next decade," according to the Times-News.

Meanwhile, as parents were briefed by school officials, "rain water from a leaky section of the [school] gym's roof plopped into a few buckets on the floor," the Times-News said.
