LIVONIA, Mich. (AP) - A suburban Detroit school district has revoked the charter for a Japanese immersion school it authorized and will operate the same program as a district magnet school this fall.

The Detroit News reports (https://bit.ly/1q9Nmsb ) Hinoki International School had been run as a charter school since 2011 to provide dual immersion for Japanese and American students. It started with 14 students and grew to 130 this past school year.

Anne Hooghart, president of Hinoki’s board, asked the district to support the charter through 2015 while she searched for a new building and authorizer.

Livonia Public Schools Superintendent Randy Liepa says the school was operated successfully for several years, but began to have administrative problems. He says the decision to revoke the charter was to ensure the school’s operations and long-term success.
