Restraining Order Issued in Cordia School Case

On Tuesday night, a Frankfort Judge issued a temporary restraining order to Cordia School’s attorneys. A nearly 5 hour hearing was held in Frankfort on Tuesday, as a Judge heard arguments on whether to keep the Cordia School in the Lotts Creek Community School of Knott Co open. Last week, attorneys for Lotts Creek Community School (LCCS) filed a complaint/petition with the court to keep Cordia Schools from being closed on Friday. The reason for the possible closing stems from a letter sent to the Knott Co School Board by Kentucky Department of Education Commissioner Stephen Pruitt ordering students be moved to different facilities. Several Cordia School students, parents and faculty members were bused to Frankfort for Tuesday’s hearing. For now, Cordia students will be able to stay in their current school, at least until the restraining order dissolves at the time of the next hearing, which is scheduled for February 14. The hearing will be held at 9:30 a.m. at the Franklin Co circuit court. That hearing will also explore the possibility of repairing the school.
