It was an emotional week at the East Fort Worth charter school. Monday they were ordered to close by Thursday, got a brief reprieve on Wednesday and then ordered to close by Friday. Throughout today, students passed in and out of Theresa B. Lee Academy, located at 4327 E. Lancaster Ave, to get copies of their transcripts and other student records. Some weren't sure what to do and didn't want to leave. Meanwhile, staffers were calling the school to see if they'll ever get paid. They said their last check was in September. Tomorrow's story details what students are feeling and what options they have now.
