Robert Mussa Moton Charter School has canceled its public budget hearing, according to principal Paulette Bruno.

A Lens reporter went to review the school’s budget, by law made publicly available 10 days in advance of the hearing, to find there was no copy available for public review.

Bruno said the budget was not available and that the school’s financial officer had had a death in the family and was out for several days.

The hearing, originally scheduled for June 13, has been postponed said Bruno.

As required by law, the school will have to run a legal notice in the Times-Picayune 10 days prior to the hearing, when it is rescheduled.
