Thankfully, we have already received a number of large grants to help with our planning year and getting the school underway, but there are a number of limitations to them. Besides, there are some things that make a school a school that large grants don’t take into consideration. The grant budgets cover the basics and sometimes they operate as reimbursement grants, so we have to have the money and spend the money before we can be reimbursed for it. Cash on hand and meeting some of those particulars are the needs we have to open well in August. Imagine the cost of filling a 50,000-square-foot building with everything a school needs and you get a sense of the challenge we’re facing. As a public charter school that does not receive the local ad valorem taxes like other school districts, we are constantly needing to make up those differences in other ways. Your generosity is key to our success.
