As a public charter school, PVS receives 80% of the funds of a typical Portland Public School. This amounts to $1,500 less per student per year. Additionally, charter schools are responsible for additional expenses, such as our facilities and maintenance costs. The costs associated with the building lease, facilities maintenance, instructional and learning materials, staffing, special programs, and field trips continue to increase. We must work together as a community to reach our annual fundraising goals so that our students will continue to receive the quality learning experiences we desire for them at PVS.
