LOS ANGELES (AP) — A judge has ruled that two charter schools in the Los Angeles Unified School District can open this fall despite questions about fiscal mismanagement.

The Los Angeles Times reports that Los Angeles County Superior Court Judge Luis A. Lavin found district officials should not have closed the two campuses operated by the Magnolia Education and Research Foundation without consulting with the Board of Education.

The schools are science academies in Palms and Northridge. They are two of eight schools operated by Magnolia.

LAUSD officials didn't renew the schools' charters after an audit found Magnolia was $1.66 million in debt, among other things.

Magnolia officials have denied allegations of financial problems.

The schools will now open this fall as the LAUSD pursues the issue with the school board.
