PATTERSON ACADEMY TO REMAIN OPEN FOR NOW

A Duval County charter school that was facing closure because of a lack of health permits and safety testing was able to provide enough documentation Monday to remain open, according to a Duval County Public Schools memo released Tuesday.

Patterson Academy for the Arts provided some, but not all, of the documents the district demanded by Monday.

The school took care of radon testing, its asbestos inspection and received provisional approval from the fire marshal. It was given a Sept. 10 extension deadline to finalize health permits for food service and to complete insurance documents.

The school's principal, De Vondalyn Patterson-Hughes, did not return calls for comment on Tuesday. The first-year school has about 75 students and is located in the old FBI building on Arlington Expressway.
