HAILEY, Idaho (AP) — State officials say a charter school in central Idaho is facing extreme financial troubles.

The Times-News reports that the Idaho Public Charter School Commission decided Thursday to send a letter of fiscal concern to the state regarding Syringa Mountain School. The Hailey-based charter school received nearly $696,000 in state funds this year, but that fell short of the estimated $1.07 million the school expects to spend by the end of the fiscal year — which ends July 1.

To make up the difference, the school is now using donations to cover the rest of the year’s expenditures. However, the state commission says that method is not sustainable. Syringa’s operation director was not available to comment Thursday.
