One of the state’s largest public school districts will no longer be allowed to sponsor charter schools. 

The Ohio Board of Education voted 15-0 Monday to revoke the Cincinnati Public School District’s status as a charter school sponsor. Board member Pat Bruns from Cincinnati abstained from the vote.

The revocation came after the district received a “poor” rating for the 2015-2016 school year from the state Department of Education.
