Dear PVS Families,
This is a the final week of our Annual Appeal campaign. Thank you to all who have contributed quotes, donated money, and shared encouraging words.
As a public charter school PVS receives 77.6% of the state funding of PPS neighborhood schools. The amount of per student state funding changes multiple times during the school year, can be decreased, is based on enrollment, and can be reduced retroactively. As a public charter we are also required to maintain financial stability as one of the statutory requirements for Charter renewal in ORS 338.065(8)(a)(D). Maintaining this stability with an unstable funding model makes budgeting difficult so PVS relies on fundraising to fill in those gaps.
Thank you for helping us close the funding gap.
