HOLLYWOOD, SC (WCSC) -

On Thursday an emergency meeting between a Lowcountry charter school and the Charleston County School District was held because the school still has not started its new school year.

Before the meeting, several parents said they are losing patience with Lowcountry Leadership Charter School because two weeks into the school year, their kids are still not in a classroom.

The charter school was supposed to temporarily rent out RD Schroder Middle School until construction is finalized on their building. Also, classes were supposed to start Sept. 5. None of that happened.

Because of an issue leasing the building, the school's staff was there on Thursday, but students could not be. A statement on their website said they would also cancel school Thursday and Friday.

Melanie Brazaitis says she knew the charter school would start late because construction was pushed back due to a rainy summer. But she thought issues would be worked out by now.

"I'm concerned about the length of the school year running over versus the other Charleston County schools," says Brazaitis.

School officials have scheduled another meeting for Friday where they plan to finalize a lease on the Schroder Middle School building and a start date for classes.
