(DUGGER) - The Indiana Cyber Charter School, that recently announced the opening of its Dugger campus for the 2014-15 school year, is under fire for alleged non-payment of almost $600,000.
NewsBarbs reports, a complaint against the online charter school has been filed in the U.S. District Court's Indianapolis Division stating the school is being sued by National Network of Digital Schools (NNDS) for non-payment of services in the amount of nearly $600,000.
The complaint, which was filed on July 25, claims the school owes almost $400,000 for a loan extended to Indiana Cyber; curriculum charges totaling nearly $200,000; and $6,700 for computers and equipment.
