"If corrections can not be made then I think we should close the school," says school board member Carol Cook.

The school uses a controversial curriculum from the Church of Scientology, first reported by the Tampa Bay Times. But school board members said Scientology did not affect their decision.

Sarah Parker teaches 1st grade at Life Force Academy. She says the school does not teach religion.

"I don't know anything about Scientology," says Parker, who is Episcopal. "So to imply I was pushing Scientology. I'm sorry I wasn't."
