Prime Prep Academy
DALLAS — According to representatives at the Texas Education Agency, Prime Prep Academy filed for an informal review with the agency late Wednesday afternoon.

The charter school, co-founded by football legend Deion Sanders and D.L. Wallace, received notice from the TEA stating that the school needed to repay $45,000 for subsidized lunches that weren’t accounted for.

After the report, Sanders took to twitter saying he’d foot the bill himself.

Our cameras stopped by Prime Prep and were told by Principal Leicha Shaver she would be available for an interview, but canceled soon thereafter.

She directed us to Superintendent Ron Price at the main office, who could provide an interview on the school’s status.  After contacting the office, his assistant informed us that information concerning the said interview was “not correct,” and that all interviews are currently blocked.

NewsFix called Prime Prep back, but only received the institution’s voicemail.

Now, the TEA staff will review the appeal and the commissioner will decide the next steps.
