For new charter arts academy in Derry, fundraising is the key
Dozens of curious parents attended the charter school open house on Saturday at its proposed location, 16 Route 111, Building 4.
It’s understandable parents would have questions to pose to Leweck as the school was just approved by the Board of Education on Aug. 19. The arts academy was the fourth charter school to be approved this summer after the Board of Education lifted a moratorium on new charter schools in New Hampshire.
“I’m very blown away by the creativity,” Riopel said. “It gets the kids thinking outside of the box.”
Of the approximate $12,000 annual cost of educating a student, the school receives about $5,500 per pupil from the state. The remaining balance of federal money, however, doesn’t follow the student to the charter school but goes to the public school within the district that the student would have attended, she said.
“We aren’t a traditional school,” Leweck said. “We don’t have a football team. We need to get creative in other ways to cut corners and educate a pupil.”
