DALLAS -- Parents are still hopeful that Prime Prep Academy will remain open for the remainder of the school year, even though it looks like they're going to throw in the towel.

"My granddaughter has been going here for two semesters, ever since the seventh grade, and she had really benefit from Prime Prep," a grandparent, whose child attends the school, explained.

The Board of Directors was planning a meeting Monday night on what to do with the debt-ridden school, but canceled the meeting at the last minute.

They were expected to vote to surrender Prime Prep's charter.

Mr. Prime Time himself, Deion Sanders, who co-founded the school, took some time out of a busy Super Bowl week to write his thoughts on Facebook.  He hopes the Texas Education Agency and the board will enable the school to remain open through the end of the year.

Many parents are praying for the same thing.

"And I am sorry they're going through this, but they are in my prayers and hope she will be right back next year," a grandparent explains.

"I think before it's all over, everything is going to be alright."
