BROOKLYN - The future of a Brooklyn school that's been helping struggling students for decades is in jeopardy, possibly due to a clerical error.
The Alpha School on Linden Boulevard in East New York helps struggling students stay out of jail while earning their GEDs. However, it could come to an end after Oasis, the program that funds the school, cut it from its budget.
According to principal Barry Addison, state officials are disputing how many students attend the school. He says there are five times more students than what the records show, which resulted in the loss of funding.
Addison says there's no appeal process and that Oasis told him to reach out to his contract manager to figure out where to send the kids.
News 12 Brooklyn reached out to Oasis for comment, but hasn't heard back.
