PETITION IN SUPPORT OF CHARTER SCHOOLS

 

Call to Action 

Friend,

As a charter school supporter, we need your help to protect our schools. It will take less than two minutes.

Senate bills S-202 and S-739 seek to change the way our charter schools are funded by freezing and cutting education aid to our schools, among other changes. These changes would be devastating to the thousands of current and future families that rely on our schools as high-quality public education options.

We must tell our legislators that charter schools are public schools, and our students and schools deserve to be treated fairly. Please, take two minutes to use this simple advocacy tool to contact your legislators who need to know you oppose these bills. Click here to send your message now, or call the Senate President's office at 401-222-6655 or the Senate Majority Leader's office at 401-222-3310.

Thank you for your support!

Steve Nardelli, Executive Director
Rhode Island League of Charter Schools

Kingston Hill Academy is a public (no tuition) charter school located in Saunderstown, Rhode Island. The school opened in September of 2001 with just 40 Kindergarten students. Since that time, the school has grown to 180 students in Kindergarten through Fifth Grade. KHA is chartered for up to 260 students, Kindergarten through Eighth grade and is exploring the opportunity of expanding the physical plant to accommodate middle school students.

KHA is operated under a charter granted by the Board of Regents of the Rhode Island Department of Education (RIDE) and follows RIDE regulations, assessment and teaching standards and all other requirements mandated for traditional public schools in Rhode Island. Teachers and teacher assistants are certified by the State of Rhode Island and meet highly qualified status under No Child Left Behind. KHA has a 185-day school year; and the daily hours are 8:40 AM to 3:10 PM. KHA participates in the National School Lunch Program. Meals, including breakfast and lunch, are available to students and are provided by Chartwells.
