York Mayor Kim Bracey has sent a letter to the governor asking him to help keep a York charter school open.
New Hope Academy charter school is scheduled to close in January. The York City school board denied New Hope's five-year charter renewal last year, saying it had not lived up to academic expectations or followed state guidelines for operations.
On Tuesday, the State Department of Education denied the school's appeal. School officials said, however, that the fight is not over to keep the school open.
