Parents Voice Concerns at High Point Academy

SPARTANBURG, SC (WSPA) – Parents are worried that a change in leadership at a local school could lead it to closing.

Tempers flared at High Point Academy in Spartanburg during a meeting after the school’s superintendent was placed on leave.

According to a letter obtained by 7News, Lori Manning was placed on leave while the school investigates allegations of financial fraud and discriminatory employment practices.

“We love the school and anytime anyone in a high level of administration is not here anymore, we wonder why because we want to make sure our kids are going to a good school and are being well cared for and things are being done in order,” a parent, Frank Jackson, says.

Not all the board members were there at the meeting Tuesday night, including the board’s chair.

The board chair said in a statement that High Point Academy is not in danger of closing.
