Judge Crump in unchartered waters

Dakota Academy -- founded a year ago by Hennepin County District Judge Harry Crump and his wife, Faith -- closed its doors last Saturday, according to the education department and the school's sponsor, Crossroads College of Rochester. (Click here for Strib article.)

Apparently, the Burnsville charter school -- which had about 100 students enrolled -- was at a crossroads with its sponsor. The college ended its sponsorship on June 30. (State law requires charter schools to have a sponsor to operate). The college had demanded a financial audit and leadership changes for it to even consider serving as an interim sponsor.

Crump is still on the school's board, although he has stepped down as chairman. The article says the school plans to take all reasonable steps to stay open, including litigation if necessary.
