Sky Mountain Charter School (under Innovative Education Management) has just announced to their students that their instructional funds, available to be used at participating vendors, will be increasing in the Fall to $2000/year per student for K-8 students and for high schoolers it will be $2500/year per student. That breaks down to $1000 per semester for K-8 and $1250 for high schoolers.
This is a significant increase from their previous $800 for K-8 and $1000 for high schoolers per semester. Sky Mountain representatives said, "Over the last few years Innovative Education Management has worked diligently to maintain financially sound schools during some severe state budget cuts. Now that the state has lifted the funding reductions, we are pleased to announce that we will be significantly increasing the students' instructional fund allotments for next school year."
This is good news for hundreds of homeschool families and will allow parents a larger amount to spend on curriculum, classes, tutoring, and other educational services.
Charter schools are a great option for parents who like to have some educational funds available to pay for educational expenses and often when skeptical relatives know that a student is enrolled in a public charter school, it calms their fears of the parents "messing up". It is also useful since they keep all your records straight and gives advice when needed. They even provide an accredited high school diploma for those who would like that.
