By Demorris A. Lee, Times Staff WriterA North Pinellas charter school reaches out to the church for help in saving the Life Force academy.
CLEARWATER - Looking for a savior, a North Pinellas charter school that has filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy has asked for help from the director of a group affiliated with Scientology.
Life Force Arts and Technology Academy, which caters to low-income children from Clearwater's North Greenwood neighborhood, filed paperwork in federal court July 25 showing it is $250,000 in debt.
The school, which has 106 students, also must find a new home. The school has operated out of the New Beginning Community Church on Sunset Point Road since it opened in 2009, but according to court documents, the school owes the church $25,366.
