The process for starting a charter school in North Carolina is complex. Take a look at last year’s charter school applications — some are more than 100 pages long! The guide for figuring out the finances of a charter school is 50 pages long.
In order to make this school a reality, we will need the skills of many people:
- Educators who have experience in special education, regular education, and project-based learning
- Occupational, physical and speech therapists
- People with experience in finance and business planning
- Fundraisers (because the state doesn’t provide funding for a building!)
In addition to figuring out the school’s education plan and finance plan, we will need to find a place to house the school!
It’s a big job, but if we are committed, we can make it happen. Do you have the skills we need, and are you willing to help?
