Making It Happen



http://www.wacharters.org/wp-content/uploads/2013/05/charterschooltimeline.jpg

This timeline is found on the Washington State Charter School Association site. The beige and green rectangles are what apply to us.  The Washington State Charter School Commission is to whom we will be applying to be our "authorizer"; to date, Spokane is the only school district that has applied to be an authorizer; see article here.

As you can see, we have a lot of work to accomplish before November 22, 2013!

So far, we have several people interested, but only a handful of families who have committed to this cause.  Now, we are trying to rally the troops.  We have the vision for what we want this school to be, but we need expert advice to help us begin making plans.  We have a lot of work to do and decisions to make regarding location, funding (it will take money to get this project moving before we are approved and receive public funds), staffing, curriculum.  We have begun the process of applying for a 501c3 Non-Profit Organization which will manage the school.

Please let us know how you can help, and please spread the word!
