Why does Honey Creek need a foundation? Doesn’t it receive funding from the state?

Yes, but the way charter schools are funded is a bit different from your neighborhood school.  Honey Creek receives less per pupil from the state, and when we need new equipment or upgrades, we cannot pass a bond to fund these projects.  That, combined with our small class sizes, puts Honey Creek at a financial disadvantage.  We are quite good at doing more with less, but our children deserve the very best.
