The Honey Creek Community School Foundation is the non-profit entity that raises funds for the school. As you may know Honey Creek is at a significant financial disadvantage. Here are just a few of the facts about the current challenges facing our beloved school:
Charter schools receive $2000 less in state per-student funding than local public schools
Changes in state funding over the last 5 years have led to a $400 per-pupil reduction in funding, making it increasingly difficult to maintain Honey Creek’s unique small class sizes and individualized approach to learning. With present enrollment, this equals $100,000 in reduced funding.
Teachers/Administrators at Honey Creek earn less than their counterparts in public schools
HCCS faces challenging times ahead as its budget forecasts shortfalls in revenue
