We are very excited to Welcome to the 2021-2022 School Year! Below we are sharing important information with you, please read through it carefully!
To start, we want to thank our staff for putting together an amazing summer program for our students. We’ve been on break for the last two weeks recharging our batteries and are now ready to look towards the new school year!
There are many new practices brought by COVID that we believe have been beneficial to improving how we think about education and how we operate on a daily basis. Overall, we strongly believe that students are served best when they are at school learning alongside their peers and educators. It is our intention that all students return to school for in-person learning 100% of the time. We look forward to learning and experiencing new things together.
For those whose children have to remain at home, we will be attending an update this week on the new regulations as they pertain to attendance and distance learning. As soon as we have an understanding of these new guidelines, we will share them with you.
Our budget has been approved for the next school year. Here is a brief overview:
We operate our school with roughly $1.2 million dollars.
Of this $1.2 million, about $700K goes to salaries for our staff which has now grown to 20 members that serve our children daily!
That leaves about $500K for us to manage all other expenses that include things like:
~$85K Rent (not including utilities)
