Do public charter schools get funding from the city for facilities?
Yes. Public charter schools are awarded $3,124 per student each year for facilities. Each public charter school receives a per-pupil allocation based on a student’s grade level, special education status and needs, and other factors. Funding is provided by the DC government directly to schools on a quarterly basis, beginning with a payment on July 15 and in accordance with the July 1–June 30 fiscal year.
