The past month has come with much excitement and some hurdles to overcome. Your founding team is gearing up for a fairly intense few months as we come into the final preparation period to apply for our charter.
This month we have started taking courses with the Arizona Charter Association to help us get off to a good start and understand more about charter school laws.
One of our hurdles this month came with the grant application. We had two large grants in sight; however, we were not able to apply for one of them as regulations had changed and the other significantly reduced their funding so we were not able to benefit from it either. That leaves us with our next few months being focused on fundraising and writing the charter application. This is where YOU come in. With just a few months to make many things happen to bring this school into reality, we need some help. We are looking for about 3-5 individuals to add to our board. We specifically need people with expertise in finance, marketing, and legal issues. If you have those expertise and are willing to work with us, please contact Susan at 719-291-6079 or reply to this email. We will be holding brief interviews as soon as possible.
