EL CAJON, Calif. (KGTV) -- Nearly 1,000 students left without answers after three charter schools forced to shut down.

In a lawsuit filed by the Grossmont Union High School District in 2015, a judge ruled against the charter schools in Lemon Grove, El Cajon and Lakeside demanding they shut their doors June 28 for good.

The charter students say they’re non-traditional and don’t want to go back into public schools.

The district superintendent says they charter schools were unlawful when the charters got authorization through the Julian and Borrego Springs school districts.
