Our board is currently raising funds to cover start up costs. Our immediate goal is $50,000 and our first year goal is $250,000. 

Facility monies are not given to start-up charter schools in North Carolina. Only operational costs are covered for the school, even in the first year. We will depend largely on funds donated by our community to help pay for our facility and the upfit (furniture, toys, etc.) for the school. 

We will gratefully accept donations of other forms (appropriate toys, furniture, playground structures) when we are closer to securing the school. 

We will also gratefully accept the donation of your time to help get this project off the ground. If you would like to give in any other way, then please contact us at raleighoakcharter@gmail.com.

Public Charter School funding and Public School funding

 

North Carolina provides strong support for public charter schools; however, it is important to note that there are significant differences in funding between district schools and public charter schools. Here are some reasons for which Raleigh Oak Charer School is asking for contributions to our fundraising efforts.

  • As a public charter school, the state provides about $6,900 per student, which covers teacher and administrative salaries, instructional supplies, technology, and other operational costs.

  • While Raleigh Oak Charter School will attempt to provide teachers with salaries that are competitive with the Wake County Schools, WCPP, we are unable to offer a similar benefits package, including participating in the NC Retirement System;  it is challenging to recruit veteran teachers without this significant benefit.

  • WCPSS buildings and facilities are funded through local bonds, but charter schools are unable to access any of those funds to cover the costs of our buildings. For this reason, Raleigh Oak Charter School must rely on contributions and fundraising and must cover the cost of our buildings through our instructional funds.
