  • Charter Schools Do Not Receive Public Funding for Facilities:
    Public charter schools are held to higher accountability standards, but do not receive equal consideration when it comes to student funding. Unlike traditional public schools, charter schools do not have access to local property taxes and receive no direct state aid for construction of new buildings or renovation of existing ones. This creates about a $2,000 per student per year funding disparity and forces charter schools to use state funding intended for instruction and operations to also cover all building construction and related maintenance costs.  (see funding gap study)
