OKLAHOMA CITY – The Oklahoma City School Board has a special meeting tonight and parents from two Enterprise schools will be watching closely.

Bell Isle Enterprise School and Jackson Elementary School were left in the lurch last week after board members could not agree on their contracts.

Now the schools have agreed to pay around 200,000 dollars in administration fees that had previously been waived.

Tonight the board will vote again on the contracts.

They are expected to pass, even though some board members have  been vocal in criticizing the schools.

Bell Isle scored an A-plus on its latest report card and Jackson scored a B-minus.

A few board members say they think Belle Isle has an unfair advantage, because they select students with higher academic achievement.
