Burbank public education officials are reporting that about 40 students lack academic records from a private Armenian school that filed for bankruptcy last year.
An unknown number of students who left Scholars Armenian School and Arts Center for elementary, middle and high schools in Burbank Unified lack their records, forcing administrators to consider starting them off with clean slates, said Cathy Krailo, an assistant guidance counselor at John Muir Middle School.
“We can’t find them,” she said. “We need the educational history so we can place the kids.”
Some parents were soured when the school closed, Krailo said.
John Muir officials have not been able to track down the student transcripts since Scholars closed its Grandview Avenue location in January after a dispute with the landlord, Alex Kuiumdjian.
