IDAHO FALLS, Idaho (AP) - An eastern Idaho charter school is closing after deciding not to appeal a decision by the state’s Public Charter School Commission to revoke its charter.

Odyssey Charter School officials in Idaho Falls announced the decision Thursday to close the school for good at 5 p.m. Friday.

The commission on Wednesday revoked the school’s charter after deciding the school lacked the ability to reach its accreditation standards.

The revocation came after the school failed three accreditation readiness visits.

School officials decided not to appeal.

The school had about 200 students.
