EAST ST. LOUIS, IL (KTVI) –   East St. Louis School District 189 is losing a charter school. The Tomorrow’s Builders Youth Build Charter School will close at the end of this school year.

The Illinois State Board of Education voted against renewing the charter for several reasons, including imminent insolvency, failure to meet teacher certification requirements, failure to maintain accurate attendance and enrollment records and poor student performance. 108 students will be transferred to other district schools in the fall.
