“ The only way we can build a school is if the entire community gives. Gives till it hurts a little bit. In time, money or both.”
We raised over $409,000 in pledges. This was enough to allow us to balance our operating budget and resubmit our charter application in the Seaside School District.
We submitted our revised proposal to the District on 10 July. The District has 20 days to review our revised proposal and either accept or reject it.
If they reject our proposal, we will appeal to the Oregon State Board of Education and we are confident that the Board of Education will approve our proposal.
- Our proposal is sound. You can review it here.
Unfortunately, the delay caused by our revising our proposal has made it impossible for us to open this fall. However, we plan to open our public charter school in September of 2015.
Please consider a pledge to our school. And consider a "multi-year" pledge...for example, if you are inclined to pledge $3000 towards our goal, a pledge of $1000/year for three years would be very helpful.
Note that pledges are not effective until the charter is approved...so no need to send any money until we have permission to begin our school.
