$690,000 Grant Awarded to Painted Rock Academy

Reid Traditional Schools’ Painted Rock Academy has been awarded a grant in the amount of $230,000 per year for three years, for a total of $690,000 in funding. The Arizona Charter Schools Program (AZ CSP) recommended Reid Traditional Schools’ Painted Rock Academy to the Arizona State Board of Education for AZ CSP funding at its March 26, 2012 meeting, and that recommendation for a grant has been approved.

The AZ CSP is a competitive start-up grant that supports visionary leaders who will form charter schools that will improve students’ ability to achieve high academic standards. The grant is available only to new charter schools during their planning and implementation phases. Painted Rock Academy will use the AZ CSP grant in the first year to purchase textbooks, train faculty, and implement community outreach. Grant proceeds in years two and three will be used for additional equipment, supplies, and training. Congratulations are due to Painted Rock Academy!
