AUSTIN, Texas (AP) - State education officials say they’ve identified 14 open-enrollment charter schools that meet the legislative standard for mandatory revocation of their charters.

In a statement Tuesday, the Texas Education Agency said the schools failed to meet academic or financial accountability performance ratings for the three preceding school years.

Conservators are being appointed for each school, which have until Jan. 12 to request informal reviews and possible hearings.


The schools are the Academy of Careers and Technologies Charter School in San Antonio; Bay Area Charter School in El Lago and League City; Bright Ideas Charter School in Wichita Falls; City Center Health Careers in San Antonio; Faith Family Academy of Oak Cliff in Dallas; Girls & Boys Preparatory Academy in Houston; and Henry Ford Academy Alameda School For Art + Design in San Antonio.

Also named were Higgs, Carter, King Gifted & Talented Charter Academy in San Antonio; Ignite Public Schools and Community Service Centers in Brownsville, Edinburg, Mission, Raymondville, Rio Grande City, Weslaco; Medical Center Charter School in Houston; Northwest Preparatory Academy Charter School in Humble; Phoenix Charter School in Greenville; San Antonio Technology Academy in San Antonio; and Transformative Charter Academy in Killeen.
