DAVID, Ky. (AP) - An Appalachian high school that serves as an alternative for at-risk students was on the brink of closing last year, but has manage to survive.
The David School Principal Diantha Daniels told the Lexington Herald-Leader (http://bit.ly/Uo9GEW) that 20 students were enrolled in the fall and four more are expected to begin this month at the Floyd County school.
The school was founded in the 1970s by a transplanted New Yorker who was shocked by the poverty of Appalachia.
The school has always struggled, but last year things got really bad - paychecks were late, and a nearby mission had to donate food.
After a judge removed the founder from control and a new board was appointed, things started to turn around.
Daniels says the school is "going to make it."
