TWIN FALLS -- The Idaho Public Charter School Commission plans to issue a notice of defect to Xavier Charter School in Twin Falls over financial issues.

The Times-News reports the commission made the decision Thursday. Director Tamara Baysinger says the notice means the charter school commission is warning the school that it is violating some part of its charter or state charter law.

Xavier's head of schools Thad Biggers says the school faces at least a $232,000 deficit for the upcoming fiscal year, which starts Oct. 1. He says the school's $810,000 annual rent is unsustainable and they hope to renegotiate the lease or buy the building. The school also owes the IRS $81,000 in back payroll taxes.

Xavier will have 30 days to provide a corrective action plan.
