“All charter schools are funded through the State School Aid Act. A charter school receives funding through the per-pupil base foundation. By law, this amount may not exceed the per-pupil base foundation received by the local school district where the charter school is geographically located.” (MDE Charter School Q&A) This means our school cannot receive more funding per student than the local district, which is Plymouth-Canton Community Schools. Charter schools may also apply for grants and accept donations.
