How Much Should I Give?

Over the past few weeks, we’ve tried to give you a lot of information about our school’s funding challenges. Sometimes folks look at all this data and ask - how much should I give?

Here are some ways to think about the answer.

$121 (or $10.09/month as a recurring gift) per student will help us to close the gap in funding between the new Wake County salary scale and our limited increase in state and county funds.

$1,491 (or $124.25)/month as a recurring gift) per student covers our building expenses for this year. Since charter schools do not receive money for capital expenses like buildings, that is the shortfall compared with traditional public schools.

$12,300 (or $1,025/month as a recurring gift) per student equals the total amount of our outstanding mortgage. If every family could contribute at this level, we could pay off our mortgage freeing up all of our funding for our students, our teachers, and basic building expenses.

We understand that families have varying capacities to give. We need lots of contributions at lots of levels to support our school and to reach or surpass our goal of $300,000. Please contribute today at the highest level possible for your family. Please call me if you have any questions.

Contact the Development office with any questions.

Logging in to the RCHS Website
RCHS Community
It is vital for our parents to log into the RCHS website to update contact information. With current information, the school can ensure timely communication with families, especially in the case of urgent or important announcements. Your RCHS login can also be used to view events on our calendar which are not open to the public and to view contact information in the Parent/Student directory. Parent userids are also vital to the success of our online sign-up system for Flex and Community Workdays. Each parent is assigned their own userid. Please note the following information concerning RCHS logins.
EACH NEW PARENT was sent an email with information about his/her id/login on August 6th. Please use the information in the email to log in and update your information. There is no need to request a parent ID. Check your spam folder to be sure it didn't get caught in there. In compliance with the FERPA requirement of an opt-out period, new students and parents will not have access to nor be displayed in the Parent/Student directory until August 22.
NEW STUDENTS will receive their RCHS network logins and RCHS email accounts during new user sessions conducted during the first week or so of school.
RETURNING STUDENTS needing their network or email passwords reset will need to come see Mr. Ennis or Ms. Smith once school is in session. (room 216) Students cannot request password resets online or via email.
RETURNING PARENTS can log in to the website by going to the login page (click User Login on the RCHS homepage) and typing in their UserName and password. Reminder: a parent's userid is the email address which is on record with RCHS. If a parent email address has changed since the last login, the parent should log in with the previous email address and update this information. If you have forgotten your password, type in your username and click "Forgot your password?". An email containing a temporary password will be sent automatically.
If you have any concerns, send a brief description of your problem to logins@raleighcharterhs.org.
