Program For Troubled Students Looking For New Place

Posted November 22, 2004 5:58 a.m. EST

— A school for suspended and convicted high school students is looking for a meeting place off campus.

The John Baker Charter School serves high school students in the Wake County Jail.

The school shut down its off-campus site after complaints from neighbors about student behavior.

Plans are under way to find a new site. Until then, students are either transferred into public school or tutored at home.
