Formula for charter school success

By Alice Keesing
Advertiser Staff Writer

The state auditor yesterday released the formula that calculates how much money each of Hawaii’s six existing charter schools should get for 2000-2001.

Halfway through the school year, the charter schools are still calculating their budgets.

Under state law, charter schools must receive money equal to any other public school. The auditor’s charter school allocation uses fixed costs, which are for staff, and variable costs, which are calculated on a per pupil basis.

Connections, Big Island $653,448

Kanu O Ka Aina, Big Island $682,510

Lanikai Elementary, Oahu $992,694

Waialae Elementary, Oahu $1,363,744

Waters of Life, Big Island $760,695

West Hawaii Explorations Academy, Big Island $646,730

The other schools that have been granted charters and are expected to open in the next school year:

Voyager, Oahu; Innovations, Big Island; Halau Ku Mana, Oahu; Ke Ana Laahana, Big Island; The Volcano School of Arts & Sciences, Big Island.
