Update on State Funding

** SPECIAL NOTE FROM THE BOARD CHAIRMAN AND JPEC PRESIDENT:  STATE FUNDING**

Good Evening Parents & Guardians of our Falcons,

I am writing to share with you a recent line item veto that affects our students directly. Governor Gretchen Whitmer has vetoed specific line items from the approved budget.  One of these line items was the $240 per pupil increase for Charter School students.  As it stands, there will be no increase in our foundational allowance for our Falcons.  While this may seem like a small amount, it adds up to a loss of $86,000 for our school.  We do a lot with our current per pupil allotment that already lags behind public schools.   Our school, as you know, is a public school but the current administration doesn't view us that way.  We are not asking just for more money, we are asking for educational funding equity and fair treatment of our Falcons. 

Several Charter School organizations are taking action to advocate for our students: Michigan Association of Public School Academies (MAPSA), the National Charter Schools Institute (NCSI), and the Michigan Council of Charter School Authorizers.  They need our support.  Please take the time to Take Action and let your legislators know that our children are not political pawns and deserve fair and equal treatment in state funding. Please see MAPSA's action center by using the link below and take the time to stand up for our Falcons.

MAPSA | Take Action

Sincerely,

Jonathan Williams | Board Chairman 

Shane Malmquist | President
