After years of turnover and turmoil, Global Village Academy in Fort Collins will have to fight to stay open after June 30 — otherwise about 177 students will have to find new schools.

On Tuesday, the Colorado Charter School Institute that oversees the school’s state charter said it would begin coordinating a closure after deeming that Global Village fell short of the mutually agreed upon conditions in its 2017 contract.

Julie Rossi, Global Village Academy principal, wrote in an email statement the school planned to appeal the decision.

Global Village Academy is one of three state-sponsored charter schools in Fort Collins. The dual language immersion school that opened in 2013 is also part of the Global Village Charter Collaborative, which includes five schools in Colorado.
