KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) - A French language immersion charter school and the Kansas City district have put the brakes on plans for a high school that would have offered a college preparatory curriculum known as International Baccalaureate.

The Kansas City Star (https://bit.ly/1wXvR8o ) reports that plans had called for the Academie Lafayette to run the school for the district in the Southwest Early College Campus.

On Tuesday, Academie Lafayette board vice president Marvin Lyman and Kansas City Superintendent Steve Green said they wanted to create a “language-rich” high school. But concerns over the fate of current students currently at Southwest compelled them to suspend talks.

Lyman said it wasn’t workable to have two programs in the building. He added that the charter will be looking at alternative locations for a high school.
