Despite allegations of fraud, a high scoring charter school in Oakland will stay open.

The San Francisco Chronicle is reporting the American Indian Public Charter School 2 can continue operating for another five years, but the school board will revoke its charter if problems are not fixed within two years.

The board made that decision on Wednesday in a 4-3 vote.

According to the Chronicle, the school is required to clean up lapses in financial and administrative oversight.

A state audit questioned the way the school spent more than $1 million in public funds.
