Hello RA families and staff! The proposed NYS budget is calling for a DECREASE in funding for Rochester Charter Schools. We are the only city in NY that is facing this issue. Please join one of the two zoom meetings listed on the attached flyer to find out how we as a Rochester Charter School Community can express to the governor and state legislators how important adequate funding is for our students. There is still time for amendments to be made to the budget before it is passed. Please take the time to learn more about how your voice can be heard! Thank you!
