Panama City - One local charter school faces probation after receiving poor marks from the Florida Department of Education for the third year in a row.

New Point Bay High School received another D grade for the 2010-2011 school year. That's it's third D in a row. Bay District Schools officials warned New Point a few months ago that another D could mean possible probation.

Wednesday, Husfelt said the school board will discuss what to do.

"Their grades and graduation rates, they all count towards our overall grade and graduation rates so if they're not achieving then it is detrimental to the whole district so that's something we take very very seriously," he said.

Among the school board's options are calling for a new director or principal at New Point, amending the school's charter or even closing the school.
