APS is considering revoking the charters of four schools.

At a meeting Monday night, Superintendent Winston Brooks said the charter schools have not disclosed certain financial records.

The schools are Amy Biehl Charter High, La Luz del Monte Learning Center, Southwest Primary, and Southwest Secondary Learning Centers.

Nearly 800 students attend those four schools.

The superintendent says he's giving the schools until 4 p.m. on Friday to hand over the information, or else they will face losing their charters.

This comes just days after a state audit found financial problems with 36 APS charter schools.

After the report came out, APS officials said it didn't know if it had the authority to oversee charter school finances. The state education secretary quickly responded saying APS does indeed have that authority.
